Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) compared migrant detention centers to dungeons used slave camps in Africa during the slave trade
“We arrived in Ghana, and one of the first things we did was to visit what some would say is a castle, but they were dungeons. And I remember as we arrived one of the guides let us into the female dungeon, and he started giving us a description of what was– what used to take place as the Africans were being kept, were held there as captives.”
And every time he would talk about the separation of the kids and from their parents and how they would have young girls be in the same dungeons as the women or they would have young boys be in the same dungeons as the men, I couldn’t stop seeing images of the current camps we have here our borders in the United States. And so of a story that happened 400 years ago I constantly had this reminder, this horrifying image, of many of the things that were taking place there in that dungeon now taking place, whether it is in in the shores of North Africa or in the shores of the United States.

Twitter chimes in:
Oh brother… there seems to be no end to her foolishness. An absolute refusal- or maybe an inability?- to keep her talking points straight & comparable. And people buy into this nonsense…

Utterly disgusting! The people 400 years ago did not march thousands of miles and turn themselves in to their captors.
What is similar however is the profitability of human trafficking that the cartels are engaged in.
She is the face of the modern left. It is a scary one.

This woman is the absolute worse! For her to talk this way about the very country that took her in, made her a citizen, educated her and her family and elected her to the US House of Representatives! She is a traitor in the worst way!

As long as her constituents support her she is free to spew deliberate lies of this nature. The media will abet her dishonesty.

People there of their own choice
They are free to leave
They have access to food, water & emergency medical care

She forgets that the Africans were kidnapped and forcibly held in those “slave camps” whereas migrants come here on their own, knowing they will be breaking the law if they try and enter illegally. They make a conscious decision to take that risk.
