This gets to the point that the people who are poo-pooing the concentration camp comparisons are missing. The comparison was always about the process, not the end result. The holocaust didn't begin with gas chambers: it started with dehumanization and scapegoating that enabled the regime to get away with abrogating the human rights of a specific community. it's not hard to see teh same process at work in the treatment of migrants.

No, the comparison hasn’t been the process.  It is never that nuanced.  If it was, we wouldn’t be having this debate.
