We have a Statue of Liberty standing in New York Harbor with that beacon of light and hope saying, send us your tired and your hungry, send us you huddled mass of yearning to breathe free. She stands for something. She stands for the fact that this country has always welcomed it — not always, its best moments welcomed immigrants and that is not what we`re seeing from this president today.
What he has done on the border is inhumane and intolerable. He is separating families, children from parents, mothers from babies and locking up people in facilities that are run by for-profit prison companies. It`s an outrage. I would get rid of all that. That should not be under ICE, it should not be under Homeland Security.
Immigration is not a security issue. It is an economic and a humanitarian and a family issue. So there is no such thing as an illegal human.
