Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) says she thinks President Trump’s desire for a southern border wall to stem the flow of illegal aliens coming into the U.S. is a lot like preventing people from escaping the socialist party in Germany.
“No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination,” Ocasio-Cortez told her supporters during a video livestream Friday.
“I think it’s like the Berlin Wall. I think it’s like any other wall designed to separate human beings and block out people who are running away from the humanitarian disasters. I just think it’s wrong.”

Of course, the Berlin Wall was constructed to block the East Germans from fleeing their socialist/ communist rule and escaping to capitalist West Germany.
Some people on social media felt free to inform her on history and facts.
