The Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy, in which children are being separated from their families when they cross the US-Mexico border illegally, drew comparisons to Nazi Germany on Monday.

Critics used that reference to highlight what they described as the callous nature of a policy that splits up families seeking refuge in the US.

During an interview with Fox News opinion host Laura Ingraham on Monday night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rebuked the criticism: “It’s a real exaggeration,” Sessions said. “In Nazi Germany, they would keep the Jews from leaving the country.”
