The California Senate passed a resolution Thursday asking President Trump and Congress to take responsibility for separating immigrant families at the border.
Twenty-nine Senators voted yes, three voted no and eight abstained. The dissenting votes were Joel Anderson, Mike Morrell and Jim Nielsen, KPBS News reports.
State Senators Kevin de León, Richard Pan, and Scott Wiener authored the joint resolution that was scheduled for debate, and passed on Thursday.
A federal judge is telling the Trump administration to be as efficient in reuniting families as it was in separating them. The judge in Southern California gave the administration 30 days to return thousands of children to their parents. Kids under 5 must be returned sooner. These were all children separated from their parents as families crossed the border.
The California Senate resolution calls on Congress to specifically apologize to the children separated from the adult foreign nationals who illegally brought them across the U.S. border. It also petitions Congress and President Trump to acknowledge wrongdoing in separating illegal alien adults and children.
The resolution describes the policy of separating foreign nationals who have crossed the border illegally as “detrimental.” De León described the separations as “government-sanctioned kidnapping.”
“They created the problem, they need to fix the problem and make sure there is clear accountability. We should apologize to these children we have permanently harmed,” -Sen. Pan
California politicians have long been known for their social antics’ and demands, this one is something special! Demanding the President of The United States and congress to apologize to criminals, now that is just a very special kind of insane.
“President Trump sanctioned white supremacy and hatred across this country by failing to condemn these acts of violence and racism, and emboldened these groups into further action,” the measure states.
Next thing will be they demand open borders and to dissolve ICE, oh wait, they are already making those demands as well, they will not rest until we are a 3rd world nation that places “white people” on the endangered species list.
