WATCH: Omar Agrees with AOC, Accuses ICE of Running “Concentration Camps”

Recently, Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has drawn bipartisan criticism for her comparison of US detention facilities holding illegal aliens to WWII-era concentration camps used by the Nazi forces to imprison and murder innocent Jews.

When asked by reporters, fellow Democrat lawmaker Ilhan Omar said she completely supported her colleague, alleging that the US government and ICE are operating concentration camps at the US-Mexico border.

Omar, who has frequently drawn criticism of her own for remarks regarding Israel and Jews, appeared completely surprised that the comparison was seen as controversial.

Social media commenters were not amused by Omar’s reaction, and took to the internet to reply.
