Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compares migrant caravan to Jews fleeing Holocaust

By Peter Hasson

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.

Members of the caravan on Sunday rushed the border at the San Ysidro port of entry, which connects Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol closed the port of entry in response and reportedly used tear gas to disperse the crowd of migrants.

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.

Some of the caravan members reportedly threw rocks at American authorities before tear gas was used.

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. Open-borders idiots like Alexandria O-C have ruined and are continuing to ruin the United States. Stop ALL immigration now.

  2. Just another “wingnut” socialist, who is she and what was she doing before she won the election.

  3. The leftist MSM is grooming her just like they did with the community organizer as is evident by her complete lack of a political track record vs the amount of face time she is being given.

  4. Every time this woman speaks it shows that she is really lacking in her knowledge about almost everything.

  5. What’s all the fuss, if the Mexican Government had protected its southern boarders as they should have, we wouldn’t have to deal with these invaders. Some how the main stream press and the crazy dem/lib/prog seem to overlook the fact that the asylum seekers when let into our country are processed through our court system with the understanding they will return for a final disposition of their asylum request. Problem is thry never show up and we haven’t a clue as to where they are. Simple solution, keep them out, review their appeal and once a final resolution has been determined, act accordingly.

  6. Please someone pay for her tuition and send her back to high school. She is not ready for university yet. She needs help.

    • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez majored in economics from Boston University, although one can not determine that from her witting and statements,as she comes across as a mindless Marxist twit.

  7. Dear Miss A.O.C. – Your comparison of the caravan people to the victims of the Holocaust is yet another illustration of your breathtaking ignorance!

  8. Just how stupid is she, my God …….. Socialist DemocRATs have no common sense
    and she really proves it !!

  9. Focus on the key words, the Migrant Caravan are not fleeing, they are attempting to enter the United States of America illegally seeking economic opportunity. Something American Citizens would like to experience themselves, Vermont residents among the Americans with a #50 Vermont NEGATIVE 0.9% Job Growth under a Democrat/Progressive Super Majority. The Jews of the 20th Century fleeing Democrat Socialist Nationalist Germany were actually fleeing mass genocide, systematic extermination by another Dictator Adolf Hitler Many of the Jewish families caught in other countries through out Germany’s 1,000 year 3rd Reich of global domination. The newly elected Progressive Alexandra Ocasio-Cotez, has youth, she is a beautiful young up and comer in the DNC and should visit Veterans of World War II thanking them for their sacrifice and being lucky enough to run for a Public Office while making horrible analogies.
