President Trump’s Family Separation Policy is Similar to the Holocaust, Student Editor Claimed

Apparently, to an assistant opinion editorial editor for the University of Pennsylvania student newspaper, the family separation policy under Trump is eerily similar to the Holocaust. The student, Samuel Aftel, claimed Trump’s enforcement of President Obama’s policy was “chillingly reminiscent” of Nazi Germany:

Although family separation is not murderous genocide, the ‘we are just taking them to bathe’ tactic is chillingly reminiscent of the way Nazis during the Holocaust told people in concentration camps that they were going to have a shower before they were gassed to death.”

Even when the policy was reversed by executive order by President Trump, Aftel remained adamant about his comparison despite admitting that no genocide has occurred under the family separation policy.
