Backlash of the Trump administrations policy continues to grow as The White House continued to insist on Monday that we should be blaming Democrats for the administration’s forced separation of children from their families at the southern U.S. border.
Corey Stewart, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Virginia that has partied with white supremacists went on MSNBC to back Trump.
When asked if he thinks that President Trump should be separating children from their parents at the border, Stewart started by implying that Trump himself is not the one separating the children. He the continued: “The fact is we do have to enforce the law however, otherwise we are going to have another humanitarian crisis at the border like we did a few years ago. A lot of those children came into my county, I know everything about it. We don’t want to have that happen, we have to send a signal to everybody else south of the border that if you come to the United States illegally you are going to get arrested – and yes your children are going to be temporarily separated from you. But as soon as you go home you will be reunited.”
“The immigration policy must be what’s right for America.”
With young children being held away from their parents – infants even – Stewart still stands behind the belief that this policy is more important than children’s well-being due to it being in the best interest of the United States. When asked if the policy is more important than the children he answered emphatically: “Absolutely!”
When he was asked if this immigration policy is moral: “It is an unavoidable policy.”
He then moves onto encourage people applying for asylum that they can apply to other countries because the United States is not the only country that accepts migrants and refugees.
“If you cross the border illegally, the president has made it clear that he is going to enforce the law and arrest the adults.”
Stewart, the staunch Trump supporter deep to his bones, continues to toe the far-right party line for the President. Stewart will be facing Tim Kaine (D) in the November general election.
