Lawmakers gathered in McAllen, TX Sunday for a press conference to speak out against the Trump administration’s treatment of immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. One of the most scathing criticisms was brought by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who condemned family separations, demanding that President Donald Trump end the practice now. “Let me just quickly say that when you have a mother tell you directly that she’s in fear that she will never see her child again and when the United Nations human rights commission indicates to the Trump administration you’re violating human rights, then you know that what we are saying today is President Trump, cease and desist because you are moving the arc of justice to the heap of despair and the trash heap of injustice,” Jackson Lee said.
