New Ad Urges Malinowski To Speak Out Against AOC’s “Concentration Camps” Rhetoric

The American Action Network today launched a new digital ad campaign calling out Congressman Tom Malinowski (NJ-07) for his silence as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accuses the brave men and women of U.S. Border Patrol of running “concentration camps” while protecting our southern border. It’s the latest example of Malinowski deferring to his radical colleagues rather than standing up for what is right.

“It’s a disgrace that Tom Malinowski won’t stand up to the disrespectful rhetoric that’s now rampant on the left,” said AAN Spokesman Calvin Moore. “The longer Malinowski stays quiet, the more he makes clear he is willing to overlook inflammatory rhetoric rather than do what is right.”

The new ad today comes after AAN launched ads in April urging Representatives Tom Malinowski (NJ-07), Haley Stevens (MI-08), Dean Phillips (MN-03) and Abigail Spanberger (VA-07) to call for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s removal from the House Foreign Affairs Committee in response to her numerous anti-Semitic comments.
