Last comment on this: "concentration camp" is an extremely charged term and I get why many people are, in good faith, uncomfortable with its application for Godwin's Law purposes among others. So let's just call them "detention camps" and focus on what's happening in them.

Chris, I think they're concentration camps. Keep in mind that one of their functions *by design* is to punish those individuals and families who are detained. So even the "charged" term is appropriate.

Some people seem to be under the impression that the terms "concentration camps" and "Nazi concentration camps" or coterminous. Those people weren't history majors.

You don't cite Britannica as a source generally, and you don't use it as a dictionary ever. If you don't believe me about this, as your teacher.

Except that this has nothing to do with what I posted. It's a non sequitur. I don't believe that Trump constructed any camps (honestly, I don't think he builds much of anything), and I've never said so. The "design" part is a reference to the child-separation policy.
