Dick Durbin Claims Border Crisis is Trump’s Responsibility

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin blamed President Trump for the current crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, citing his purported “Muslim travel ban” and the administration’s alleged mistreatment of migrant children.

“Look at his record,” Durbin said. “First, he started us with the Muslim travel ban, then he eliminated the DACA program, protecting 790,000 people, then he said no protection for those under temporary protected status, then they took 2,880 children, infants and toddlers away from their parents and tossed them in a bureaucratic sea, and now he’s calling for mass arrest. It’s the president, make no mistake.”

“Ultimately, it’s the president’s responsibility,” Durbin added.
