The whole point of the comparison was never about drawing an equivalence between the migrant internment camps and the death camps, but to highlight the similarities between how the demonization and marginalization of Jews led to the Holocaust and Trump/GOP's campaign to demonize and marginalize immigrants. So while the migrant camps might have more in common with the other examples you cite in terms of their conditions and intent, they fit just as well with the Nazi camps when viewed as part of a political project.

Thatís what the apologists say about the actressí tweet.  It was never a comparison, it was about drawing the equivalence of demonizing a group to get their neighbours to hate them.

Same problem with both those hyperbolic comparisons....
