Former CIA and NSA chief Michael Hayden today compared President Trump’s immigration policies to that of Nazi Germany in a Twitter post, the Daily Beast reports.
“Other governments have separated mothers and children,” Harden wrote next to a black-and-white photo of Auschwitz. Hayden has joined a growing chorus of criticism over the policy of separating migrant families at the border, which Trump has repeatedly blamed on Democratic lawmakers.
Following reports earlier this week that nearly 2,000 children were taken by immigration authorities in a period of six weeks, the archbishop of New York also came out against what he called an “un-American” policy. Cardinal Timothy Dolan on Friday slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for invoking the Bible to defend the practice, telling CNN, “I don’t think we should obey a law that goes against what God intends that you would take a baby, a child, from their mom.”
All these people should get a grip. And learn about the laws of immigration.
