Condemning Trump's 'Racist Attacks on Immigrants,' Sanders Calls for Bans on Mass Raids and For-Profit Detention Centres

In a major immigration speech in Nevada on Thursday, Sen. Bernie Sanders condemned President Donald Trump’s ongoing “dehumanization of undocumented people” and outlined his alternative agenda, which calls for an end to mass immigration raids and a ban on for-profit detention centres.

“The time is long overdue for us to stand up and to tell this president and his Republican allies that we will no longer tolerate demagogic and frankly racist attacks on immigrants,” Sanders, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, told the crowd gathered at Martin Middle School in Las Vegas.

Sanders went on to call for comprehensive immigration reform that would provide a “pathway to citizenship” for undocumented people, “immediately” grant permanent legal status to Dreamers, and bring to an end family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“America must never be a nation in which babies are snatched from the arms of their mothers,” Sanders said.
