Becerra Claims ICE Agents Apprehend Illegals Because They Don’t Look Like They Were Born Here

‘I’ve been trying to reach out to Attorney General Sessions ... to get a sense of really what is their policy when it comes to the DREAMers’

STEPHANOPOULOS: One of the cases in the news this week, this man Juan Montez, who he says he was picked up by border agents inside the state of California, they dispute that right now saying that he was arrested after he came back in from Mexico.

Do you have any independent information on that?

BECERRA: Not really, George. And, as you said, the facts still are in dispute.

What I’d like to do, and I’ve been trying to reach out to Attorney General Sessions and to DHS Secretary Kelly, to get a sense of really what is their policy when it comes to the DREAMers. We have a policy in place that the president has today not changed, and so we’d like to know is it in fact a policy of this president and this administration and this Attorney General Sessions to abide by the DACA policy that allows DREAMers to continue to go to school, to go to work, to believe that they’re not going to be out there and be apprehended by ICE agents simply because they look like people who weren’t born here. If you can figure that out.
