A Look Inside ICE 'Concentration Camps': Xbox, Artificial Turf Fields, Law Library

For months, Democrats including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have given the impression that U.S. immigration detention centers are tantamount to Holocaust concentration camps.

The freshman congresswoman led the litany of allegations against ICE facilities, as she asserted via Twitter that law enforcement officials were treating illegal immigrants as if they’re sub-humans.

It should be pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez has a difficult time distinguishing fact from fiction; she’s a lawmaker who grapples with what’s legal.

A Fox News report from an exclusive tour this month of an immigration detention center in Adelanto, California, contradicts the Democrats’ end-of-the-world assessment of the southern border situation.

The video below serves as transparent evidence — something Ocasio-Cortez didn’t provide to back her claim that immigrants in Clint, Texas, were drinking out of toilets — of conditions at ICE holding facilities.

The Adelanto Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility features such amenities as round-the-clock health care, unlimited phone calls and a law library. If immigrants being held there want exercise, soccer fields are available.

Do you think Democrats have made exaggerated claims about ICE detention centers?

A detainee from El Salvador claimed the Adelanto center is superior to others of its kind.

“Right here, I have contact with my family, I can hug my kids,” said Noel Beltran.

That positive Fox News report and video footage comes on the heels of Vice President Mike Pence’s encouraging visit two weeks before.

Despite the fact there’s palpable video documentation showing clean and healthy conditions at ICE centers, doomsday Democrats will likely persist in proclaiming otherwise. Because that’s what they do. Whenever leftists speak out about something the Trump administration oversees, it must fit their narrative that President Donald Trump and his supporters are racist — as The Daily Wire recently reported about actor Jeff Daniels.

God forbid the truth get in the way of Democrats’ stories.
