Michelle Obama joins Laura Bush in taking on Trump's immigration policy

2024-07-13 13:22:58      点击:845

Former first lady Michelle Obama just weighed in on the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, and she's calling on members of all parties to wake up and take action.

Over the course of a six-week period, nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents at the border due to strict immigration policies. Now, immigrants who cross the border, including refugees seeking asylum, must be detained, which means their children are taken from their custody and sent to detention centers.

On Sunday, former first lady Laura Bush published an op-ed in The Washington Postto address her concerns with the harmful policies, titled,"Separating children from their parents at the border 'breaks my heart.'"

"I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zeo-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart," Bush tweeted alongside her op-ed.

On Monday afternoon, Michelle Obama retweeted the article, adding, "Sometimes truth transcends party."

Obama joins many political figures who've publicly spoken out to condemn the negative effects of the zero-tolerance policy, including Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton.

Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter also weighed in:

First lady Melania Trump addressed the controversial zero-tolerance policy on Monday, providing a statement that stands in stark contrast to those from Obama and Bush.

Melania's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, told CNN: "Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform. She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart."

President Trump, meanwhile, spent Monday morning tweeting to reinforce his incorrect assertion that the Democrats are to blame (while also misspelling the word "border").
