Laura Bush Compares Trump’s Policies with Illegal Aliens to Japanese Internment Camps
Here we go.
Now Laura Bush — who did not vote for Donald Trump — is piling on the GOP administration for detaining illegal alien children.
Bush compared them to the Japanese internment camps.
Apparently, all children of the world should be allowed to roam the country freely.
Laura Bush wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post of all places against President Trump on Sunday.
She was silent during the Obama years.
“I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel,” Bush wrote. “It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.”
She continued on by comparing the separated children’s “shelter” to World War II Japanese internment camps.
Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children in converted box stores or making plans to place them in tent cities in the desert outside of El Paso. These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history. We also know that this treatment inflicts trauma; interned Japanese have been two times as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease or die prematurely than those who were not interned.
