VideoCast: Families Belong Together v. Trump

Families Belong Together march in Chicago, June 30, 2018. (James Foster/Chicago Sun-Times)

My chat with CNN International this morning about the 100,000s of Families Belong Together v. the policies, lies, and derogatory language of the Trump Administration….

This will be a continuing expression of concern not only over the immigration policy with the detention of children and separation from their parents, but even wider than that — the attitude of the President and his Administration towards people of other races, towards people of other religions such as Muslims, towards women and even just the language they use….

Whether this succeeds will be a question not only of what happens in an election in November but what happens week-on-week….Donald Trump and his Attorney General Jeff Sessions and White House advisor Stephen Miller don’t want these children reunited. They are not buckling — they are doubling down on their bet.
