Chuck Todd: Ocasio-Cortez’s concentration camp remarks do border detainees ‘tremendous disservice’

NBC “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd on Wednesday condemned Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) comments comparing the Trump administration’s detention centers near the southern border to concentration camps, saying the remarks were a “tremendous disservice” to the detainees.

“You can call our government’s detention of migrants many things, depending on how you see it. It’s a stain on our nation maybe, a necessary evil to others, a deal with untenable situation perhaps. But do you know what you can’t call it,” Todd said on MSNBC’s “Meet The Press Daily,” before transitioning to a clip of the freshman lawmaker stating that Trump was “running concentration camps on our southern border.”

Todd noted that Ocasio-Cortez “tried to make a distinction between concentration camps and Nazi death camps” following criticism.

“Fair enough,” Todd said. “But congresswoman, tens of thousands were also brutalized, starved, and ultimately died in concentration camps. If you want to criticize the shameful treatment of people at our border fine, you’ll have plenty of company. But be careful comparing them to Nazi concentration camps, because they’re not at all comparable.”
