If the detention centers housing busloads of illegal immigrants really are “concentration camps” as New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likes to put it, they are the worst concentration camps ever made.

Correct us if we are wrong, but, the entire point of a concentration camp is to keep people in — rather than encourage people to leave. Then again, President Donald Trump is also the worst Nazi in the history of Nazis, what with recognizing Israeli sovereignty and all that. All these damned white nationalists sure are bad at their jobs!
