    In response to Milano’s tweet, some social media users enquired if the actress would like to help migrants in a more tangible way.

    American actress and activist Alyssa Milano has once again stirred up the social media crowd with her latest Twitter jab against US Vice President Mike Pence whom she seemed to compare to a high-ranking Nazi official and chief architect of Holocaust.

    A picture tweeted by Milano on 13 July features a photo of Pence visiting a detention centre for illegal migrants, juxtaposed with a photo of Nazi SS chief Heinrich Himmler inspecting a prison camp in the 1940s.

    ​Milano’s move seemed to evoke a largely negative response, with many social media users criticising the actress’ reasoning.

    ​Some critics also joked about how Milano might help migrants.

    And one user even presented a little juxtaposition involving the actress herself.

    However, there were also those who appeared inclined to agree with Alyssa.

    In June, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez performed a somewhat similar move when she tweeted that the Trump administration established "concentration camps" for migrants on the country’s southern border, also using an apparent Holocaust reference when further discussing the issue on her Instagram.
