Trump Alleges Family Separations Deter Illegal Immigration

By October 25, 2018 News No Comments

At a recent Make America Great Again rally in Kentucky, President Donald Trump made arguments in support of his policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. Trump stated, “If they feel there will be separation, they don’t come.” At the same rally, Trump also made unsupported claims that immigrants were “grabbing children and they’re using children to come into our country in many cases.”

The Trump Administration abandoned their family separation policy in June after images of detained children made headlines inciting public backlash.
