Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made shocking remarks about concentration camps on Friday, stating that she does not “even know why” it is “controversial” to compare immigrant detention facilities run by the U.S. government to concentration camps.
Omar’s comments came in response to a question from a reporter at The Rebel, who asked Omar: “Do you agree with AOC that ICE is running concentration camps on the border?”
“There are camps and people are being concentrated,” Omar responded. “This is very simple. I don’t even know why this is a controversial thing for her to say.”
“We have to really, truthfully speak about what is taking place and this is why it’s really important for us to abolish ICE and make sure that we have an agency that is accountable to the people.”
