On Sunday, a large group of migrants were throwing rocks and attempting to barge into the country at the port of entry connecting Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California.

In response, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to condemn the U.S. for securing the border and forbidding the migrants from entering the country.

But Graham would not tolerate that kind of comparison from Ocasio-Cortez and fired back with a brutal tweet of his own.

On Monday night, Ocasio-Cortez responded to Graham by claiming the Trump administration has “jailed children and violated human rights.”

She also appeared to be arguing that authoritarianism and violence is a growing force under President Donald Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez was comparing migrants who tried to storm into the country and hurled rocks at U.S. officials to innocent Jews who attempted to flee during World War II to escape being murdered by the Nazis.

Her sickening comments have drawn scorn from many, but this is hardly the first time she’s made controversial remarks.

On Monday, the 29-year-old socialist called for 5,000 caseworkers sent to the U.S.-Mexico border rather than American troops.

Ocasio-Cortez said troops defending America’s southern border created a “moral crisis” and that the only solution was to send thousands of caseworkers to help the illegal aliens in the migrant caravan.

Her sickening comments have drawn scorn from many, but this is hardly the first time she’s made controversial remarks.

This is also the same person who claimed “people are going to die” over climate change, thinks there’s “three chambers of Congress,” and attacked the electoral system because she can’t receive her congressional salary until she’s officially sworn in as a member of Congress.
