Kirkpatrick Responds to Fox News False Report
This morning, Fox News and other outlets put out false reports on my position on ICE without a single word from me. Here is where I stand.
ICE needs top-to-bottom reform. Trump’s policies — especially around family separation — are illegal and should end immediately.
I am disgusted by the Trump policies aimed at immigrant families. Children separated from their parents. Children put in cages. Parents deported for minor civil infractions such as traffic tickets. These policies are immoral and they are counterproductive.
The work done by ICE and the Border Patrol must be done in a manner that is humane, ethical, accountable and transparent. Today, in many cases, it is not.
I support Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and I support the DREAM Act. I also support making sure that federal government employees like those who work at ICE are following the law, and respecting the humanity of the people.
