“I was outraged by the coverage regarding the President’s family separation policy. In light of the recently signed Executive Order ending this practice, I implore both Democrats and Republicans to enact policy that will stop criminalizing those who seek asylum in our country. Clearly, separating children from their families will not deter those who are fleeing to the United States.

They are fleeing from countries where they are sure to face poverty, violence, political persecution and even worse.

This is certainly a crisis that our country faces and we cannot sit idle while it continues. We are a great country of immigrants; it is certainly plausible that our leaders in the White House and in Congress can form reasonable and responsible immigration policies.”
