Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is comparing giving sanctuary to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. to giving shelter to Jews fleeing the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.
"And if you ask yourself 'What would I do if I was a gentile in 1941, if my Jewish neighbors were under attack by the Nazis? Would I give them sanctuary?'" Ellison said Monday in comments on President Trump's move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
"I'm one of the people who believes we should give our neighbors sanctuary," he told supporters in Minneapolis, as reported by the NTK Network.
Trump said earlier this month he was ending the Obama-era program, which spares from deportation those who were brought to the U.S. as children. The president, however, has called for a legislative solution and indicated a willingness to work with Democrats on the proposed Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.
Ellison, who has pushed against Trump's decision to end DACA, made his comments the same day House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) confronted a crowd of angry protesters at a DREAM Act press conference in California. The activists, furious with Pelosi for dealing with Trump on the issue, eventually shouted her off the stage.
"So this is not someone elses fight; this is all our fight but some people are in the bulls eye and others of us are not exactly the target. Therefore, it is our responsibility to stand up and fight and do the right thing," Ellison said.

Right, illegals face government sponsored execution should they return. That's why the come here. Alternately, Ellison relates to the fact that many illegals come here to work, others for criminal opportunities. To Keith an abuse that the US doesn't allow them en masse. And give them citizenship. Keith looks at Jews, and considers their eradication from the face of the earth to be the same thing.
Keith, you mean like those Jews Roosevelt would not let into the US and sent them back to their deaths?..................
Isn’t that a pretty severe insult to Mexico? Isn’t he saying Mexico is like Nazi Germany?
....there is a difference nit
And why does a muslim like Ellison think Jews fleeing Nazi Germany was/is a problem?
Is he comparing Mexico to Nazi Germany?
So doesn’t that mean that ellison, the Jew hater, wants the illegals murdered?
Yes, we should have given the Jews sanctuary. It is an eternal stain on our national ledger. Mehicans, Muslims, and sub-Saharans are not a good mix with modernity however. No comparison.
If I were Enrique Peña Nieto, I don’t think I’d be too pleased with this comparison!
So he is OK with the US military going into their home countries, to make them safe for democracy, and give the refugees a homeland? Wow, no wonder progressives have gotten us into so many wars!
The Muslim Brotherhood’s congressman hath spoken.
Yes, Central America, much of eastern Europe, India and China too. Not to mention Western Europe. He'd deny all that, his only concern is western hemisphere Hispanic illegals.
That's all I need know.
The only good islam is a destroyed islam.
So let me get this straight. Did Ellison just call Mexico and other countries nazi Germany?
Ellison is an idiot.
Muslims fleeing muslim countries cuz islam is the religion of peace, hahaha..... rich!
ellison has no right to say anything until all his co-religionists turn into non-violent, tolerant civilized humans.
