Sen Kennedy: ‘Tell AOC the Voices in Her Head Aren’t Real’

The lights are on at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, but there’s no one home!

Senator John Kennedy chastised AOC for her claims that border detention centers are “concentration camps” and greatly exaggerating their conditions.

“Let me be frank,” the Louisiana Senator said, “Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez … someone needs to tell her that the voices in her head are not real. She says that the men and women of our Border Patrol and our authorities are intentionally running concentration camps on the southern border. She needs to go to the Holocaust Museum and see what a concentration camp is.”

“The problem we’re having at the border, a problem that Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has helped create, is that we have 5,000 people a day, not a week, not a month, a day coming into this country.” He added, “We don’t have a place to put them. ”

The freshman congresswoman sparked contentious debate last month when she compared migrant facilities to concentration camps. She has referred to the detention centers as “concentration camps” as recently as Tuesday, despite a statement from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum that “unequivocally” rejected the creation of “analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary.”

Ocasio-Cortez visited multiple detention centers earlier this week with other members of Congress, and witnesses claimed she screamed at federal law enforcement officers.

“The Department of Homeland Security is out of money and the congresswoman knows that. She says the conditions are inhumane,” Kennedy concluded, “But yet, when we send a bill over to her to vote to improve those conditions, she voted no. Her hypocrisy is breathtaking. This is the bottom line. Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez believes that illegal immigration is a moral good. And she believes that the border is just a nuisance and it should be open, and I don’t think that’s what America believes.”
