In a press briefing on Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ argument that the White House’s policy of forcibly removing children from migrant families is justified by the bible.
“It is very biblical to enforce the law” Sanders told reporters.
The controversial policy has resulted in an upsurge in incarcerated children kept in secret detention centers. The Trump Administration plans on building camps to house the children.
Critics argue that the Trump Administration’s hardline immigration polices infringe upon basic human rights.
