Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was widely condemned for attacking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for comparing the Trump administration's border detention centers to Nazi concentration camps.

The New York Democrat warned President Donald Trump's immigration policies violated human rights and could lead to something far worse, and called for action to prevent another Holocaust.

"‘Never Again’ means something," Ocasio-Cortez said. "We need to do something about it.”

Cheney lashed out at the freshman lawmaker and claimed that her remarks were insulting to Holocaust victims, and hinted they were possibly anti-Semitic.

Ocasio-Cortez and other Twitter users shamed Cheney for her attack.
