New York Jewish community condemns AOC for Holocaust comparison

The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York strongly condemned Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for comparing U.S. immigration policies to Holocaust concentration camps in a letter they sent to her Tuesday.

The New York Democrat accused U.S. immigration officials of running “concentration camps” on the U.S. southern border in an Instagram video Monday night. Ocasio-Cortez made a call to action to “the people that are concerned enough with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something,” referencing the phrase used about the Nazi genocide.

“We are deeply disturbed by the language used in your recent Instagram live video which seeks to equate the detention centers on America’s southern border with Nazi-era Concentration Camps,” the council wrote.

“The terms ‘Concentration Camp’ and ‘Never Again’ are synonymous with and evocative of the atrocities committed by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany, in which 6 million European Jews were systematically denied civil and human rights due to their race and ultimately murdered in a state-sponsored genocide,” the letter said.
