Hundreds of Central American migrants clashed at the southern border near Tiajuana after trying to apply for asylum on Sunday, resulting in tear gas and arrests of many rushing the border.
One Democratic socialist continues to make headlines as a recent Congresswoman-elect over her remarks, and this time, she compared the migrant caravan to people fleeing Nazi Germany, Rwanda, and Syria — which isn’t her first time comparing something to Nazi Germany.
Democratic Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) compared the chaos on Sunday between people in the migrant caravan and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to Jewish families fleeing Nazi Germany.
“Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.
“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.”

This is not Ocasio-Cortez’s first time with the genocidal comparison as she previously compared her global warming plans to Nazi Germany during a campaign event in October.
She claimed that climate change is today’s generation’s World War II and rising temperatures represent Nazi Germany.
Read what she said:
“When we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a real, major existential threat to this country was around World War II. So, we’ve been here before. But we have a blueprint from doing this before. None of these things are new ideas. What we had was an existential threat in the context of war. We had a direct, existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany and the Axis who explicitly named the United States as an enemy. And what we did is that we chose to mobilize our entire economy and industrialize our entire economy. We put hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people to work defending our shores and defending this country. We have to do the same thing if we’re going to get us to 100 percent renewable energy.”
After Ocasio-Cortez’s first Nazi Germany remark, Germany’s U.S. ambassador Richard Grenell slammed the Democratic socialist for her comparison, saying, “It’s never okay, it’s never acceptable to minimize the Holocaust and the murder of six million Jews … Never compare it to anything because nothing can be as horrific as 11 million people, six million Jews murdered.”
