Dershowitz To Trump: End Policy Separating Immigrant Families At Border


Attorney Alan Dershowitz today issued a direct plea to President Trump to end an administration policy that has resulted in the separations of immigrant families at the border.

Dershowitz, appearing on “Fox & Friends,” said the policy is traumatic for the migrant children.

“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,” Dershowitz said. “Not because of the parents, but because of the children. It imposes a trauma on the children.”

Calling the policy “unacceptable” and “not proper,” the Harvard Law professor, who is an opinion contributor for The Hill, said there are “better ways” of addressing immigration.

“Mr. president, it just has to stop, there are better ways of doing this,” Dershowitz said. “You’re better than this, the American people are better than this. The American government is better than this.”

“So I implore you to stop it now and then we can deal with the ways of focusing on this serious problem of immigration,” he added. Read more at THE HILL.




  1. the ball is in their park: dont bring your children when you know they will be taken to a safe place as you are put in jail. or do you want your kids in prison with you?

  2. When Senator Robert Wagner Jr. proposed a bill to let 20,000 WWll yesomim r”l into the U.S. in 1938-39 the he was faced with stiff opposition and in the end he withdrew the bill. Then the opposition was against letting in foreigners! Could you figure out why??? Duh!!!

  3. Letting in drug dealers,Arab terrorists and MS13 gang members is what these liberal democRATs want. They want America to fall. President Trump keep the terrorists out. Trump 2020

  4. I think people without valid papers should be given fresh water and whatever else they may immediately need, and then accompanied back to the border right away.

  5. Our Sages tell us, if you’re merciful to the cruel, you end up being cruel to the merciful. These children should be send back with their parents so that it shouldn’t be “traumatic” for them.

  6. Wow, I thought Dershowitz was smart enough to see through the fake news of the MSM. Trump is only enforcing the law put in place by Bush in 2008. POTUS does not have a “choice” (as he and the fake media are claiming) to ignore the law as Obama did when he illegally released untold number of illegal aliens into the US. If congress is so upset about this, they should step up their game and change the law as POTUS has been trying to persuade them to do for months. Who is at fault here? Bush, Obama and Congress.
