Separating families is on all of us: O'Rourke

When it comes down to it, the separation of families at the border is “on all of us, not just the Trump administration,” Rep. Beto O’Rourke told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday morning.

“At the moment that [these children] finally thought they had reached safety, refuge, were going to petition for asylum, they were taken from their parents, and are now in Tornillo with no idea of when or if they will see their mothers or their fathers on this Father’s Day again,” the Texas Democratic congressman said.

The practice recently came under fire when Attorney General Jeff Sessions argued that, if parents don’t want to risk being separated from their children, they should not bring their children with them in the first place — adding that the administration warns those who illegally travel to the U.S. with their children in tow that “they can’t expect that they will always be kept together.”
