NOT ENOUGH: Democrats Issue NEW DEMANDS After Trump’s Executive Order

Liberal legislators downplayed President Trump’s executive order on “family separations” this week; saying the action doesn’t go far enough and issuing new demands regarding detained asylum seekers along the US-Mexico border.

The Commander-in-Chief signed the order Wednesday afternoon, effectively allowing immigrant children to remain with their parents while they await prosecution for illegally entering the United States.

“This Executive Order doesn’t fix the crisis. Indefinitely detaining children with their families in camps is inhumane and will not make us safe,” said Sen. Kamala Harris on social media.

“This isn’t over. Thousands of kids have been ripped from their parents with no plan to reunite them. And now @realdonaldtrump wants to create new detention camps for families. Separating kids is unacceptable – but indefinite imprisonment of families is still cruel & inhumane,” posted Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

“It’s extremely troubling that the president’s executive order would require immigrant families with children to be detained indefinitely. The order appears to be the next step in the Trump administration’s larger agenda to eliminate basic protections for asylum seekers,” added Dianne Feinstein.
