"The President must walk away from these cruel, ineffective and discriminatory policies, and work with Democrats to support smart, effective immigration reform that honors our values and keeps families together and safe", Pelosi added in a statement. This comes amid bipartisan scrutiny of multiple "inappropriate touching" claims against Biden. Jon Karl pressed Ocasio-Cortez on reports that progressive Democrats are frustrated with Pelosi, D-Calif., who has resisted calls for impeachment proceedings. "We fail to learn that lesson when we don't callout such inhumanity right in front of us".

Actor and activist George Takei is weighing in on the treatment of undocumented immigrants and backing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's description of migrant detention centers as concentration camps.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back-away from her outrageous comments regarding American "Concentration Camps" along the US-Mexico border Wednesday; saying the United States has a "shameful history".
As of Wednesday morning, Cheney through her Twitter account had not responded to Ocasio-Cortez's latest remarks. "And yes, we are operating such camps again", Takei wrote on Twitter Tuesday.
She added, "The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the "Home of the Free" is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it". "A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it's very hard to say that".
Her latest stunt: a video she taped in what looks like her pajamas (with the slogan "Rematriate The Land" on the front), with an unabashed accusation: "The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are".More news: Modi to avoid Pakistani airspace despite getting permission

AOC explained "to the shrieking Republicans" that her use of the phrase concentration camps "is not hyperbole".
" "Concentration camps" has become a generic term, not only about the Holocaust. She does not understand history", he continued.
The liberal Jewish group Bend the Arc: Jewish Action also came to Ocasio-Cortez's defense.
I referenced the words of Fox News host Bill Hemmer this morning, which reflect not only my feelings, but the feelings of any reasonable human being who heard what AOC said.
In the detention centers along the Mexican border, the U.S. authorities have housed thousands of migrants from Central America who have illegally come across the border. How in the world is that acceptable?
Many conservative politicians and analysts have said Ocasio-Cortez owes every Jew an apology for the comparison. "Concentration camps are considered by experts as 'the mass detention of civilians without trial.' And that's exactly what this administration is doing".
