Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, is backing up her freshman colleague, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, about the statement to say that there are “concentration camps” along the southern border, what does the US government fits the “General definition.”
Ocasio-Cortez, created a fire-storm during the Monday live stream, by declaring that the Trump administration was to say “running” concentration camps, the appeal to the Holocaust-a link “never again” and to call that a “fascist” presidency is currently in office. In the midst of a counter-reaction, the congressmen emphasized that they referred not to the Nazi concentration camp, but doubled down on them, terminology.
During a Thursday interview on Public Radio International, Omar echoed Ocasio-Cortez, attitude and defended the term and took the separation of the “death camps”.
“If you look at what is taking place, are the people in the camps. And if you think that the definition, if we separate it from the extermination camps, I would have the bearings to say, and the people concentrated in them. And so that’s the General definition,” Omar said.
