Dershowitz: Trump Has to Stop 'Separating Parents From Children'

By    |   Monday, 18 June 2018 09:31 AM

Alan Dershowitz, the famed Harvard Law School professor emeritus, called on President Donald Trump to end the policy separating children from their parents who enter the U.S. illegally.

"I would like to take one minute and say something directly to President Trump," he said in a Monday interview on Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

"Look, he watches the show. President Trump, you know, I’ve been defending your civil liberties and will continue to do so on this show, but you have to end this policy of separating parents from children.

"Not because of the parents, but because of the children. It imposes a trauma on the children. It is just unacceptable. It is just not proper. There are other ways of doing this. You can send the parents and children back together.

"It is not the facilities, it’s the act of separating parents from the children. Mr. President, it just has to stop. There are better ways of doing this. You're better than that. The American people are better than that.

"The American government is better than this. So, I implore you to stop it now. Then we deal with the ways of focusing on the serious problem of immigration. Stop it now."

On Sunday, former First Lady Laura Bush called the policy "cruel" in a column for The Washington Post.

"It is immoral," she wrote."
