Sanders Calls Immigration Laws Heartless

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) recently told CNN he believes Trump’s views on immigration are “heartless.”

After being asked about Attorney General Jeff Sessions statement that the U.S. now plans to separate the kids and parents who cross the border, Sanders stated, “I think it is heartless. I think the entire Trump views on immigration is heartless. In the last polls that I have seen some 80% of the American people believe that we should provide legal status to the 1.8 million people in the DACA program who are eligible for DACA. That’s a program that Trump killed.”

“The American people believe we should move forward with comprehensive immigration reform and Trump is moving in exactly the wrong direction. We see the cruelty of his immigration policies when you talk about the United States government separating children from their parents. We need to move aggressively and do what the American people want towards comprehensive immigration reform.”
