(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – President Joe Biden compared illegal aliens invading the United States through the Southern Border to Jews fleeing extermination in the Nazi Holocaust, a comparison that has sparked outrage.
Biden’s controversial comments came at the end of last week, ahead of his only visit to the US-Mexican border on Sunday. About 6 million illegal aliens have entered the US since he occupied the White House two years ago, the vast majority being economic migrants.
The Democrat president compared illegals to Jews fleeing Holocaust persecution after a reporter asked him if illegal immigration was a “human right.”
“I think it is a human right if your family is being persecuted,” Biden argued, as cited by Newsmax.
“I thought it was a human right for, you know, Jews in Germany to be able to go — to get to escape and get help where they could,” he added.
His remark equating illegal Latin American migrants to Jews trying to save their lives from the Nazi gas chambers immediately sparked a fierce backlash.
Numerous public figures declared that the illegal aliens storming America’s borders were not innocent victims like the Jews in World War II-era Germany escaping the Holocaust.
“Biden just compared illegal aliens — lawbreakers who have been found to be terrorists, drug dealers, and bad actors — to Jews fleeing Germany during the Holocaust,” commented on Twitter Republican US Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona.
“Not even remotely the same situation. This kind of mindset prevents us from legitimately securing our border,” Biggs added.
Another Republican US House member, Rep. Claudia Tenney of New York, stated that Biden’s comment was “shameful” and “out of touch.”
“Border patrol has apprehended terrorists, cartels, drug smugglers, and human traffickers at the border,” Tenney tweeted.
Fox News host and conservative lawyer Mark Levin also slammed the Democrat president.
“What a disgusting and awful statement from this ignoramus, and the corrupt media are silent,” Levin wrote on Twitter.
Among those who blasted Biden was Stephen Miller, former President Donald Trump’s speechwriter and senior policy advisor. During the Trump presidency, Miller was branded as a “white nationalist” by the leftist mainstream media.
“Comparing Haitians leaving Haiti or Nicaraguans leaving Nicaragua to Jews fleeing violent extermination from Nazi Germany is both an outrageous minimization of the Holocaust and a vile slander of Latin American nations,” Miller stated on Twitter.
He concluded, “Biden will say or do anything to expand illegal immigration.”
