In a surprising statement, Former Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly called on President Trump to reverse course on the immigration policy which separates criminal illegal aliens from their children.
Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly on Monday said President Trump should "reverse course" on his administration's "zero tolerance" policy that separates families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
"The government should know how bad this looks and how innocent children are actually suffering," O'Reilly, a longtime Trump supporter, tweeted. "That kind of scenario is unacceptable to most Americans as exemplified by former First Lady Laura Bush's withering criticism.
"The Trump administration will not win on this one and it should reverse course today."
O'Reilly references former First Lady's Laura Bush's strong condemnation of the policy in his tweet. Bush in op-ed published in the Washington Post on Sunday called the policy "cruel" and "immoral."
O'Reilly's criticism of Trump comes as both Republican and Democratic lawmakers voice outrage over the administration's policy that instructs the Department of Homeland Security to separate a child from a parent crossing the border that is facing prosecution. The mandate is carried out regardless of whether the family is seeking asylum.
What are your thoughts? Should President Trump change the immigration policies and allow the criminal illegal immigrants to stay with their children?
