Protecting Our Borders Is Now Called Internment

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is now saying that keeping illegal families together instead of separating them is the same as “internment” of “people of Japanese descent during World War II.”

Blumenthal stated, “Abolishing ICE will accomplish nothing unless we change the Trump policies. I visited the border about a week ago. I saw the brutality and inhumanity and absolute cruelty of these policies ripping children away from their parents. There is no plan or path to reunify them. It is not happening.”

“The Trump administration is embarked on a train wreck, a moral train wreck, a legal train wreck and a humanitarian train wreck because the plan now is to put the families together in tent city behind fences and barbed wire in ways that amount to imprisonment, internment just as was done with people of Japanese descent during World War II. That is a policy that is a disgrace to the United States of America.”
