AOC Stands By Remarks Even Bernie Won’t Defend

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday rejected calls to apologize for her controversial comments comparing the Trump administration’s migrant detention centers to concentration camps.

“DHS ripped 1000s of children from their parents & put them in cages w inhumane conditions. They call their cells ‘dog pounds’ & ‘freezers,’” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, referring to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

“I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are. If that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps – not the nomenclature,” she added.

The freshman lawmaker was responding to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) declaring that she owed the the U.S. and the world an apology for comparing the centers along the southern border with Nazi-era concentration camps throughout Europe, where millions of Jews were murdered.
