Sen. Blumenthal: Taking children from families “inhumane”


U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal is planning to join with immigrant families to protest the decision by federal authorities to separate children from their parents as families arrive at the nation’s southern border.

The Connecticut Democrat is calling for the end of what he called an inhumane practice being conducted as part of President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown.

Blumenthal is planning to join with immigrant families and advocates Monday to demand the federal government end the practice.

The event is planned for Monday at 9 a.m. at JUNTA for Progressive Action in New Haven in New Haven.

As part of the process of separating children from their parents, the administration is using a tent-like shelter to house hundreds of the minors near the Tornillo port of entry in far West Texas.
