Bernie Sanders: ‘We Need a Rational Asylum Process’

‘We don’t need to be ripping little children from the arms of their mothers’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

SANDERS: “But right now, what we need is a comprehensive immigration reform package which does a number of things. Number one, it leads to a path toward citizenship for the 11 million who are undocumented right now, it's what we've got to do. It provides legal status for the 1.8 million people, young people who are in the DACA program. And it develops a compassionate, humane process for asylum at the border. People traveling a thousand miles by foot with little children are not criminals. They are people dealing with violence and incredible poverty in their own country. So we need a rational asylum process. We don’t need to be ripping little children from the arms of their mothers."
