Dem Rep. Gonzalez: Trump Immigrant Separation Is a ‘Blemish on Our Policy’ and It’s ‘Un-American’

‘They have the power to turn this policy around’

GONZALEZ: “Well, as you said, it is a clean facility with tight beds but I didn’t see a single smile when I was there and it is a real American shame. I think it is a blemish on our policy and I think ripping kids away from mom and dad is just — it is unamerican. It is not what the world knows us for. It is not what — the America we know and love. And I think this policy needs to stop and the only person who can stop this the president of the United States, trump. And our attorney general Jeff Sessions, they have the power to turn this policy around.”
