Cory Booker escorts five migrants across U.S. border to thwart Trump admin policies

Presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) escorted 5 migrants seeking refugee status across the border in order to thwart immigration enforcement policies of the Trump administration.

Sabrina Singh, the national press secretary for the Booker campaign, announced the effort on her social media account Wednesday.

Booker said to reporters that he believed their asylum claims were legitimate based on their fears of sexual violence, and the violence they had already experienced.
