Harris: ‘Inhumane’ to Tell Immigrant Children to ‘Go Back’
Appearing Thursday on MSNBC, White House hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris claimed the Trump administration’s treatment of illegal alien children is “inhumane.”
“When a mother pays a coyote money to transport her child… through the entire country of Mexico facing unknown peril,” Harris said, it is because “she knows that the peril her child faces where they are is worse…
“When that child arrives, to say, ‘Go back where you came from,’ it is inhumane. It is irresponsible. And it is contrary to who we are, to our nature, and who we say we are. The strong arms of America should be here to receive anyone who is fleeing harm, not to flick them away and to say go back to where you came from. That’s the kind of policy we’ve had had from this administration,” Harris added.
