Ocasio-Cortez turned on her live stream last night and told all those watching her that Trump is running actual “concentration camps” on the southern border. She used this Hitlerian language and then called Trump a fascist and an authoritarian for running these camps:
Ocasio-Cortez falsely claims Trump is operating concentration camps, compares the situation to the Holocaust: “The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something … we need to do something about it” pic.twitter.com/F2MmZ8y2dT

Absolute and utter lies. She provides no evidence for her claims whatsoever, at least in this video clip. She just spews this nonsense as though it were truth.
The only thing she references that’s even remotely evidentiary is the hyperbolic and dishonest article that claimed Trump was taking children to WWII era Japanese internment camps.
Let’s be clear here. This isn’t just a case of AOC jesting about this. She says in the video that she doesn’t use these words lightly or to just throw bombs, that she really means to say Trump is a fascist for creating these concentration camps on the border.
Republicans should absolutely call her out on the carpet for these outlandish lies about the border, perhaps even calling for her to be censured. A line for truth must be drawn somewhere and she shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this fiction.
