MSNBC's Heilemann Compares Migrant Detention Facilities to Concentration Camps


Not surprisingly, the far-left panel on Wednesday’s edition of Deadline: White House did not react favorably to the Trump administration’s proposal to detain migrant families seeking asylum for longer than 20 days. According to guest host John Heilemann, “when you start talking about permanent detention facilities for any extant country, it’s like in the textbook definition of what a concentration camp is: permanent detention.” For the record, President Trump has no intention of detaining all minorities in the United States; only those waiting to hear back from a judge whether or not their asylum claim is valid. After saying “we all now accept he’s a racist,” Heilemann asked Never-Trumper David Jolly “does he really want to be known as the concentration camp President?”
