Keith Ellison Compares Illegal Immigrants To Jews Under Nazi Control

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, evoked the Holocaust on Monday, comparing illegal immigrants in the U.S. to Jews in Nazi Germany.

“I’m going to tell you right now, I’m one of them people who believes you should give your neighbors sanctuary,” Ellison said at an event in Minneapolis, where he was rallying support for the DREAM Act, a law which provides legal status to people brought illegally to the U.S. as children.

An opposition research group affiliated with the Republican party captured footage of Ellison’s remarks.
