The Quick Facts
- Last week, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez generated some controversy when she referred to U.S.-run detention centers on the southern border as concentration camps.
- The congresswoman tweeted: “This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis.”
- Some, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, have criticized the comparison. McCarthy called on Ocasio-Cortez to apologize for using the term,“not only to the nation but to the world,” saying: “She does not understand history.”
