Reacting to this now infamous picture, Alexandia Ocasio-Cortez tweets:

Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.

It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.
It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.
And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America. twitter.com/NBCNews/status…

Senator Lindsay Graham responds:

I recommend she take a tour of the Holocaust Museum in DC.

Might help her better understand the differences between the Holocaust and the caravan in Tijuana. twitter.com/Ocasio2018/sta…

Among many responses, The Auschwitz Museum:

When we look at Auschwitz we see the end of the process. It’s important to remember that the Holocaust actually did not start from gas chambers. This hatred gradually developed from words, stereotypes& prejudice through legal exclusion, dehumanisation & escalating violence.

Followed by the same tweet in Spanish and Polish.

Try asking around before you try another condescending, ignorant tweet, Senator.
