‘I Will Never Apologize’: AOC Fires Back At Republicans After They Attacked Her For Shaming Trump’s ‘Concentration Camps’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) responded to all the criticism she received after calling Donald Trump’s migrant detention centers “concentration camps.”

Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) called on her to apologize to the world for her statements. Instead of backing down, the Democratic Congresswoman fired back at her critics.

“She does not understand what is going on at the border at the same time. But there is no comparison … and to actually say that is embarrassing,” McCarthy said. “To take somewhere in history where millions of Jews died … and equate that to somewhere that’s happening on the border … she owes this nation an apology.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded:

“DHS ripped 1000s of children from their parents & put them in cages w inhumane conditions. They call their cells ‘dog pounds’ & ‘freezers,’” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, referring to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

“I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are. If that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps – not the nomenclature,” she added.
