Tuesday on MSNBC’s All In, Rep. Rashida Tlaib said all the border detention centers should be abolished in order to end the Trump administration’s ability to separate and hold immigrants.
“I’ve heard up to 16 to 20,000 children have been separated from their parents,” Tlaib said. “The solution is to talk about the discontinuing, completely abolishing the camps. So that means no separation of families. That means let’s go by the legal process of asylum. If you’re coming to the border and you seek asylum, let’s go through those legal processes.
“That’s the problem that we haven’t actually dealt with the thing that created the crisis, which is this continuation of the separation policy that is inhumane and un-American,” she added.
