Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received predictable backlash after comparing the plight of the migrant caravan to Jews during the Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide.

One of her harshest critics, Dinesh D'Souza went so far to call her "stupidest person elected to public office."
But the filmmaker's criticism didn't end there.

Per Newsweek:

Even before D’Souza’s intervention, Ocasio-Cortez’s comments had sparked furor.

One of the responses to her tweet implied illegal immigration was how Native Americans would have characterized white colonists. That prompted an angry rebuttal from conservative writer Carmine Sabia, the managing editor of The Federalist Papers.

“Show me the Native American immigration laws that were broken by anyone,” he wrote.

Ocasio-Cortez shot back: “How about murder?”, before listing law U.S. first introduced to stem the wave of non-European immigrants.
