Ocasio-Cortez defends comparing migrant detention centers to 'concentration camps'

Ocasio-Cortez defends comparing migrant detention centers to 'concentration camps' "This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis," the New York lawmaker said in a tweet Tuesday.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams Donald Trump for continuing to use concentration camps on US-Mexico border. The politician took to social media to discuss their use and said the United States needed to look at how better they could control immigration.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., seemingly accused Mark Morgan, the acting director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, of "[running] concentration camp systems" and hiding the nature of them.

Despite fierce backlash, Ocasio-Cortez showed no signs of backing down Tuesday evening on her comparison of U.S. migrant detention centers with concentration camps.

But he indicated ICE is determined to carry out the president's policies, and he criticized those who have demonized the agency.

Twenty minutes earlier, Ocasio-Cortez also hit at Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., for using the word "exterminate" to describe the systematic murder of Holocaust victims by the Nazi regime. She sarcastically accused Cheney of "defending concentration camps."

Earlier on Tuesday, the official Twitter account of the Auschwitz Memorial weighed in on a thread Ocasio-Cortez started, writing, "The history of Auschwitz is far more complicated than this as it combined two functions: a concentration camp and from March 1942 an extermination center.

EXCLUSIVE: Trump accuses Biden of lying about Obama's lack of endorsement.
President Trump on Monday accused former Vice President Joe Biden of lying about his lack of a 2020 endorsement from former President Obama in an exclusive on-camera interview with Hill.TV. "How he doesn't get President Obama to endorse him - there has to be some reason why he's not endorsing him," Trump said outside the Oval Office. "He was the vice president. They seem to have gotten along. And how President Obama's not endorsing him is rather a big secret," Trump mused, adding, "Then he goes and lies and said, 'I asked the president not to endorse me.'
