US congresswoman says Israel puts Palestinian children in cages

WASHINGTON/PNN/

The United States Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accused Israel of putting Palestinian children in cages-like prisons.

The U.S. representative for New York’s 14th congressional district compared the treatment of Palestinians by Israelis in the occupied West Bank to the treatment of undocumented immigrants on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I don’t believe that a child should be in a cage on our border and I don’t believe a child should be in a cage in the West Bank,” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez made her remarks as she participated in rally support for progressive House candidates in Austin, Texas.
