Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the embattled Congresswoman has again found herself in another scandal after she referred to immigration centres as ‘concentration camps.’
Her remarks immediately prompted ‘Americans Against Antisemitism’ to post a ”useful comparison chart” on social media.
The controversial Congresswoman made the vicious accusations during a live stream on Instagram.
“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border. That’s exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. If that doesn’t bother you… I like, whatever, I want to talk to the people that are concerned with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something,” said the left-wing lawmaker.
“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing,” she added.

The left-wing lawmaker and self-described Democratic Socialist made national headlines, when she proposed a $4,500 raise for Members of Congress and a ”cost-of-living adjustment” for all Americans.
“It may be politically convenient and make you look good in the short term… but we should be fighting for pay increases for every American worker. We should be fighting for $15 an hour minimum wage pegged to inflation,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“Everybody in the United States, with a salary, with a wage gets a cost of living increase. Members of Congress, retail workers, everybody should get a cost of living increase,” she added.
