After receiving some backlash for her denouncement of the Trump administration’s immigration policy, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., hit back at critics across the aisle.

She had previously likened U.S. detention facilities to “concentration camps,” a comparison she defended with some explanation.

“For the shrieking Republicans who don’t know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps. Concentration camps are considered by experts as ‘the mass detention of civilians without trail.’ And that’s exactly what this administration is doing.”
