(TheRedWire.com) – President Biden was blasted by critics who disagreed with his comparison that asylum-seeking immigrants were the same as Jews who fled Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
Mark Levin, a conservative commentator took to Twitter to criticize the statement which as he pointed out was “a disgusting and awful statement from this ignoramus.” He also pointed out how “the corrupt media” had not said anything regarding Biden’s comments.
Biden’s comments were a response to a question asked by a reporter on Thursday. Biden had at the time been asked whether he viewed migration as a human right.
Biden in response had said that in cases where your family is facing prosecution then migration is a human right. He then continued by saying, “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.”
However many were quick to note that not all of those seeking asylum or trying to cross the border illegally were innocent.
As Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. pointed out in a tweet, Biden has effectively compared illegal aliens, who have in the past “been found to be terrorists, drug dealers, and bad actors—to Jews fleeing Germany during the Holocaust.” He added that this is not a similar situation at all and that it was that type of mindset that effectively blocked them from finding good solutions that would help them secure the border.
Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., similarly said that Biden’s comments were “shameful and out of touch.”
