Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) stated on MSNBC “people in Ohio are not for” President Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy that separates families who cross into the U.S. illegally.
Ryan stated, “We’re all for border security. We’re all for controlling the border. We have an opiate epidemic in Ohio. We’re all for making sure those drugs don’t get here, whether they’re through the mail or the border. We’re for border security but also for a compassionate, responsible immigration system, not ripping kids from their mother’s arms. This is state-sanctioned child abuse. You have kids. If you’re grocery shopping and you lose your kids for two or three seconds, you freak out a little bit. Can you imagine for months and months at a time?”
“This is state-sanctioned child abuse, and so people in Ohio are not for that. They’re for making sure these families are together.”
