WATCH: Jeff Sessions Says: ‘In Nazi Germany They Were Keeping the Jews From Leaving the Country’

Attorney General Jeff Sessions went on Fox News Monday night to defend the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy, which has resulted in nearly 12,000 migrant children being placed in detention centers, a policy that some have compared to Nazi concentration camps.

Sessions explained to Laura Ingraham that these claims are “exaggerations,” because “in Nazi Germany, they were keeping the Jews from leaving the country.”

You can watch the video below:

In Nazi Germany, Jews were initially deported and relocated into ghettos before the Third Reich decided to enact the Final Solution, which resulted in six million Jews getting murdered in German concentration camps.

Sessions here seems to be implying that the two situations are totally different because his ultimate goal with these migrants is to send them out of the United States, back to where they came from. And that’s his defense.

In some cases, migrant parents were told their children were being taken to bath or shower (sound familiar?) and were never reunited with their kids.

Children are being kept in large cages, many of which are lit 24/7, rendering sleep impossible. Many kids are sleeping on mats on the floor, and are only allowed outside for 1-2 hours per day.

Parents and children have described the conditions in the detention centers as “freezing cold” and lacking “good food.”

On Monday, Wikipedia added the detention centers to its list of concentration camps, citing the crowded conditions and abuse children are facing from being separated from their families.
