Republican Senator Joe Kennedy wants someone in the Democrat Party to reel in Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
As BizPac Review reports, the same Republican senator who previously said about Democrats “it must really suck to be that dumb,” is now taking a swipe at the youngest congressional Democrat.
“Let me be frank. Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez…someone needs to tell her that the voices in her head are not real,” Kennedy said during an interview with KSLA 12 News in Louisiana. “She says that the men and women of our border patrol and our authorities are intentionally running concentration camps on the southern border. She needs to go to the Holocaust Museum and see what a concentration camp is.”
These are concentration camps.
According to concentration camp experts, people begin to die due to overcrowding, neglect, and shortage of resources.
We saw all three of those signs on our trip yesterday. Another person died yesterday.
And those are the deaths we know about. https://t.co/MhujNAYohJ

BizPac Review reports: “Last month the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman rejected an invitation from a Holocaust survivor to tour Auschwitz, the concentration camp where over a million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust.”
Taking her ignorance 2new depths, Rep. AOC, "The U.S. is operating concentration camps on the southern border, which would be 1st concentration camps In History where inhabitants climb walls 2 enter, Declines invitation to tour Auschwitz https://t.co/nczc5aJ1oR via @BIZPACReview

“The problem we’re having at the border, a problem that Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has helped create is that we have 5,000 people a day, not a week, not a month, a day coming into this country. And we don’t have a place to put them,” the senator continued via KSLA 12 News. “The Department of Homeland Security is out of money and the congresswoman knows that. She says the conditions are inhumane. But yet, when we send a bill over to her to vote to improve those conditions, she voted no.”
“Her hypocrisy is breathtaking,” he added.
BizPac Review reports Ocasio-Cortez did, in fact, vote against H.R. 3401, a $4.5 billion measure which provided funding for migrant detention facilities and for improving their housing conditions.
The $4.6 billion wasn’t humanitarian at all. It had NO accountability measures for facilities that abuse children and families. It didn’t fix the problem, just funded abuse.
I don’t believe in billion dollar blank checks for unethical, abusive administrations. Including yours. https://t.co/IzWJKWUxaN

“This is the bottom line. Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez believes that illegal immigration is a moral good. And she believes that the border is just a nuisance and it should be open; and, I don’t think that’s what America believes,” the Republican concluded.
“Again, he was correct,” BizPac Review continued.
Polls have shown that an overwhelming majority of Americans are against both illegal immigration and Democrat proposals to provide illegal immigrants with government healthcare, voting rights and drivers’ licenses.
In fact, a CBS poll conducted last summer found that three-fourths of Americans wanted illegal aliens detained in Trump’s alleged “concentration camps” and subsequently and deported.
Also CBS poll: only 21% of voters favor releasing illegal immigrants into the country. Nearly 3/4 support incarceration and deportation pic.twitter.com/ULUkvkQOP0
