A group of Democratic lawmakers visited an immigrant detention facility in New Jersey on Father’s Day to speak with asylum-seekers who have been separated from their families under a new Trump administration policy. From April 19 to May 31, nearly 2,000 minors were separated from their families by U.S. border agents at the U.S.-Mexico border. That’s roughly 45 kids per day.
The group, led by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, attempted to enter the Elizabeth Contract Detention Facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey, for over an hour Sunday morning. Several members of the delegation, which included Reps. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.), Albio Sires (D-N.J.), Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.), Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.), were ultimately allowed inside.
The same game was played by the same white supremacist terrorist a**holes during slavery to separate children from their families. Then they will announce later that dark skinned children come from broken families and don’t know who their fathers are.
