Mark Morgan, the acting director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for comparing immigration detention facilities to Holocaust concentration camps.
Morgan: “It’s completely inappropriate, it’s reckless, it’s irresponsible, it’s misinformed, and it’s flat-out wrong,”
“There is so much oversight at these facilities. We have [Inspector General] report after IG report. We have nongovernment organization, NGOs, that are constantly providing double-check on that,” he continued, saying he encourages the oversight of their facilities.

On Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her comments on an Instagram live video.
Ocasio-Cortez: “The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,”
“I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something. The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.”
Congress Republican have rebuked her statements.
