Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, wrote a tweet attacking the ” inhumane conditions” experienced by children detained in camps. She also made the following claims:
DHS ripped 1000s of children from their parents & put them in cages w inhumane conditions.
They call their cells “dog pounds” & “freezers.”
I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are.
If that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps – not the nomenclature. https://t.co/eJpJWeYiot
