Far left AOC is back at it. In a recent live stream Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez takes a shot at "fascist" President Trump, saying he is running "concentration camps on our southern border."
This live stream went down on Instagram on Monday. She doubled down on her attack on the government's plan to crack down on migrants and asylum seekers.
"That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps," Ocasio-Cortez said during the Instagram live stream.
This is not the first time AOC has came under fire for using the Holocaust analogy. Back in November she used it to point out that if someone applies for refugee status, this should not be considered a crime.
Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.
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. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn

President Trump fired some tweets on Monday night, addressing the situation. He said the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will next week "begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States."
....long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement. The only ones who won’t do anything are the Democrats in Congress. They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!

It could be argued that warning a raid is going to happen ahead of time is a bad move. It gives those in the country illegal the chance to prepare and hide from authorities. On the other hand it could be argued that a strong showing of force deters those considering making the illegal journey into the United States. The former is the thought process of the Trump administration.
On Tuesday night in Orlando, President Trump will launch his bid for re-election. It's no coincidence he's starting things up in Florida. It's a state that is very crucial for his re-election.
