Auschwitz Museum Enters Feud Between Ocasio-Cortez and Lindsey Graham Over Migrant Caravan

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio Cortez to visit D.C.'s Holocaust Memorial Museum on Monday. That way, he said, she could understand what real fear and suffering is for an oppressed people. He made the request after Ocasio-Cortez tried to compare the migrant caravan to the Holocaust.

First, the initial tweet. Then, Graham's response.

Graham followed up his retort with a string of suggestions as to how Republicans and Democrats can work together toward their shared goal in fixing the immigration system by first securing the border.

Ocasio-Cortez also sparred with Salem radio host Sebastian Gorka about the comparison. She tried to have the last word Monday night and retweeted the Auschwitz Memorial Twitter account, which appeared to take her side in the debate.

Ocasio-Cortez suggested that instead of sending more troops to the border to deal with the influx of migrants from Central America, perhaps they send caseworkers down there instead. Not only would it be more "moral," she reasoned, but it would be more fiscally responsible as well.
