On Monday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen responded to a reporter’s allegations that her department was engaging in child abuse by separating children from their families.
Nielsen handled the questions from reporters masterfully. She said that the growing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border “is not new.”
“This entire crisis, just to be clear, is not new,” Nielsen told reporters at the top of the White House briefing. “It’s been occurring and expanded over many decades. But currently, it is the exclusive product of loopholes in our federal immigration laws that prevent illegal immigrant minors and family members from being detained and removed to their home countries.”
Sarah Sanders followed with a terrific response to Laura Bush and her criticism of Donald Trump immigration policy!
Today Jeff Session gave a perfect response when he was asked about Donald Trump’s “family-separation policy” at least the liberals call it that way!
“This is the United States of America; it’s not Nazi Germany,” Feinstein said. “We don’t take children from their parents – until now.”
Two hours later, Attorney General Jeff Sessions sat down with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham and addressed the kinds of concerns raised by the senator:
INGRAHAM: Nazi Germany, concentration camps, human rights violations. Laura Bush has weighed in. Michelle Obama, Rosalynn Carter, you’ve got all of the first ladies, going back to Eleanor Roosevelt, she’s apparently weighed in as well. General Sessions, what’s going on here?
SESSIONS: Well, it’s a real exaggeration, of course. In Nazi Germany, they were keeping the Jews from leaving the country.
