Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y., has likened southern border facilities to concentration camps.
National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Vice President, Art Del Cueto, was not going to sit back and listen to Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s opinion without criticizing her.
Ocasio-Cortez posted to Instagram and said in her video, “The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the land of the free is extraordinarily disturbing.”

Del Cueto was on “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday morning and he expressed his frustration with her statements.
Del Cueto then offered to personally escort the freshman lawmaker around a facility to prove his point about the humane treatment given to migrants.
He also made a point to offer advice to Ocasio-Cortez by stating that she should “crack open a history book” about the Holocaust before making such comparisons.
Del Cueto said, “It is definitely a slap in the face to a lot of those people who had family members who actually went through concentration camps.”
Ocasio-Cortez has proven not to be fan of Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE to be abolished.
In February AOC claimed that “Latino people are descendants of Native people” and should not be subject to U.S. immigration laws.
AOC tweeted this last year:

AOC got some more feedback:
President Trump has actually responded in a very different way. Trump apparently has a plan of his own to stop illegal immigration. ICE will now be returning illegal immigrants to their own countries.
If we don’t keep the illegal migrants here in the U.S., we won’t have to detain them in detention centers. Problem solved. Case closed.
Well, this has been a long time coming. ICE agents will now be allowed to do their jobs.
