Torres Calls Border Conditions ‘Humanitarian Crimes’

Discussing the conditions at the U.S.-Mexico border on Tuesday’s edition of CNN Tonight, Democrat Rep. Norma Torres expressed her hope that international courts would “file humanitarian crimes” against the U.S. government and the Trump administration.

“The one thing that brings me some relief is that there are many, many heroic lawyers out there that are taking testimony and actually archiving all of these injustices that have happened under the custody of the United States of America,” Torres said.

“I pray to God that the international courts will get involved and file humanitarian crimes against this government, against this administration that has allowed this to happen,” she added.
