“Wake up, Princetonians”
This is so irresponsible, lazy, and untrue. Not to mention insulting to victims and survivors of the Holocaust.

Princeton editor compares Trump policies to Holocaust
A pair of recent op-eds in the Princeton University student newspaper label the Trump administration “authoritarian” and “neo-fascist.”
Samuel Aftel, an assistant opinion editor for The Daily Princetonian, penned both of the op-eds regarding the policy of separating illegal alien families at the US-Mexico border upon arrest. They are respectively titled “Wake up to the barbarism of our country’s immigrant family separation policy” and “The unhealable neo-fascist scars of Trump’s family separation terror.”
“Wake up, Princetonians,” Aftel begins his first piece, written several days before Trump signed his 20 June executive order ending family separation. “Wake up, America. Wake up to the state terror that is happening every single day in the United States” [emphasis in original].
“Since October 2017,” he continues, “the Trump administration has forcibly separated at least 2,000 undocumented immigrant children from their parents” at the border, adding that “this is consistent with the Trump administration’s ongoing debasement of our most vital American ideals, furthering its xenophobic, racist, misogynistic, and Islamophobic agenda.”
Similar family separations also occurred under the Obama administration, though they were fewer in number, according to the University of Pennsylvania Annenberg Public Policy Center’s FactCheck.org. The same outlet reported that the Department of Homeland Security could not provide any data on family separations under Obama, and that the Migration Policy Institute qualitatively estimated that the “mass separation” of families seen under Trump did not occur under Obama.
