20. Maybe calling it a concetration camp is too much for you, but the Tornillo camp in Texas is evil.

It was meant to house 400 kids until they could be sent to sponsors. But Trump is having ICE arrest those sponors when they come forward. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/ice-arrested-170-immigrants-seeking-sponsor-migrant-children-n946621
This has denied sponsors to many of of these children, at the same time as Trump has vastly increased the number of children detained, to now over 2,300 kids in the Tornillo camp alone. And unlike Theredienstadt, the CBP won't let international humanitarian organizations in to inspect Tornillo, or even let workers there discuss conditions at the camp. https://www.texastribune.org/2018/11/28/tent-city-texas-migrant-children/

Maybe you are offended, but I get the poster's analogy:

Succumbing to pressure following the deportation of Danish Jews to Theresienstadt, the Germans permitted the International Red Cross to visit in June 1944. It was all an elaborate hoax. The Germans intensified deportations from the ghetto shortly before the visit, and the ghetto itself was "beautified." Gardens were planted, houses painted, and barracks renovated. The Nazis staged social and cultural events for the visiting dignitaries. Once the visit was over, the Germans resumed deportations from Theresienstadt, which did not end until October 1944.
