Governor Ige responds to the separation of families at the border

HONOLULU (KITV) - Under the Trump Administration's "zero tolerance" policy, all unlawful border crossings were referred for prosecution-a process that moved adults to the custody of the U.S. marshal's service and sent children to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services. 

The president blamed democrats and said he was only following the law.  Although, democrats and many republicans called the zero tolerance policy inhumane.

Governor David Ige issued a statement today on the separation of families saying, "Separating children from their parents and loved ones seeking asylum is morally indefensible and shameful. The people of Hawai'i have always valued those who have the courage to seek a better life for themselves and their children. The Trump administration clearly does not share the same values.”
