Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) blasted fellow freshman legislator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Tuesday over her comments comparing U.S. immigration policy to Holocaust-era concentration camps. 

After Ocasio-Cortez posted an Instagram-live video Monday night likening United States border policy to concentration camps, she defended her remarks today via Twitter. 

Crenshaw called out Ocasio-Cortez for her misrepresentation of U.S. border policy, saying her "expert definition doesn't apply." 

The Texas lawmaker continued his criticism of Ocasio-Cortez by saying that her comments reveal "a total disregard" for U.S. sovereignty and a "deep ignorance" which belittles the Holocaust.

Crenshaw's comments come after the Trump Administration recently proposed 4.5 billion in humanitarian aid to alleviate the crisis at the southern border. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, told Fox News on Monday, that he will also propose a "freestanding" bill next week to address the crisis.
