Over Dozen GOP Senators Oppose Separation Of Immigrant Families

June 19, 2018

More than a dozen Republican senators are asking the Trump administration to halt the separation of immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border while Congress works out legislation.

GOP senators, led by Senator Orrin Hatch, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking for a moratorium of the Trump controversial “zero tolerance” policy, which is resulting in the separation of families detained at the border.

“….. we cannot support implementation of a policy that results in the categorical forced separation of minor children from their parents,” the Republican senators wrote.  “We therefore ask you to halt implementation of the Department’s zero tolerance policy while Congress works out a solution that enables faster processing of individuals who enter our country illegally without requiring the forced, inhumane separation of children from their parents.”

Now…please note that two uber-Christian, “family values”, Latino Republican Senators, whose parents were poor immigrants, and whose community still gets de facto political asylum through the Cuban Adjustment Act, did not sign this.  Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

Simply stated, those two are hypocrites.

    McCain. Murkowski. Collins. The usual suspects — Republicans with a conscience.
