Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Compares Migrant Caravan To Jews Fleeing Holocaust


New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday compared members of the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to denounce the treatment of the caravan members. “Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime,” she wrote.

“It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America,” she added.

President Donald Trump in recent weeks has increased pressure on Mexico to do more to stop future caravans before they reach the US-Mexico border.

  1. Much as I hate her she didn’t made any comparisons in this case.

    She simply stated that “Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime,” and gave a few examples of situations where people did so.

    Had she been like certain secular ostensibly Jewish organizations who say that we have to fight for Muslims to be allowed into the US because of Jews who weren’t allowed in during the holocaust then she would have been making a comparison. Under the current circumstances she isn’t .

    • You are right. Still, it’s a bit jarring to hear someone who supports the antisemitic BDS movement (as all too many Democrats, especially the younger ones, do nowadays) mention Jewish refugees.

  2. this ignoramus should fact check herself before blabbing, jews were turned away wholesale and send back to face genocidal murder, its a big difference than getting turned away at the border. no one is putting these people in ovens, gulgags, twisted experiments and gas chambers, at least to my knowledge….

  3. Does she even realize that such a comparison is implicitly calling Mexico (aside from Nicaragua) Nazi Germany? Those fleeing are required to ask for refugee status from the first available country they enter/cross which in this case is – even if no other country – at least Mexico.

  4. This woman should learn some history before she talks. Did she ever of the ss st louis. As far as I know there was never carte blanche for any group to get into the United States. Second in 2018 we do have to be carful of terrorists and ms13 coming in on the backs of these migrants.

  5. Really? They have crematorium’s for burning people alive in the countries these bums are fleeing from? They have random firing squads? They do experimental operation’s on unwilling people without using anesthesia?This Cortez creep is a very dangerous ignorant ass hole being used and encouraged by her fellow Democrat congressperson’s. Can’t Nanci Pelosi tell her to clamp her dumb stupid mouth shut?

  6. Why doesn’t she and her ilk pressure Mexico & the other nations of the world to clean up their own countries for the sake of their own populations. Address the cause, not the outcome.

    • Made it to Congress ( thank God she didn’t make it to the Senate ). This stupid lady is a racist. She supposedly sticks up for Hispanics but yet puts down other races in the process. She is being fueled by extreme radicals on the left. Cortez is too young and dumb to think on her own. Those who are defending this ditz are hypocrites of the worst kind. If President Trump or ANY Republican at any political level would of made that exact comment, these same defenders would be shouting from the rooftops.

  7. The woman supposedly graduated from Boston College with a degree in Economics.

    It just goes to show how low both entrance and graduation standards have become.

    A college education does not guarantee that the degree holder knows anything or had any common sense.

    She is the poster child for all that is wrong with the education system in this country.
