Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Calls Migrant Detention Centers 'Concentration Camps'

Rep.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently argued that President Donald Trump is running “concentration camps.” According to Business Insider, she also called the administration “fascist.” Ocasio-Cortez pointed toward the use of Oklahoma’s Fort Sill military base to detain hundreds of migrant children.

This location was used to intern Japanese-Americans during World War II.

In 2014, GOP Rep.

Markwayne Mullin was wary of using the facility saying it was “extremely concerning.”
