Sarah Sanders uses Bible to defend border policy
Where does it say in the bible that it’s moral to take children away from their mothers? I’m not aware of the attorney general’s comments or what he would be referencing. I can say that it is very biblical
to enforce the law. That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the bible, however … [Question from reporter unclear] Hold on, Jim. If you’ll let me finish. Again, I’m not going to comment on the attorney’s specific comments that I haven’t seen. You just said it’s in the bible
to follow the law. That’s not what I said and I know it’s hard for you to understand even short sentences, I guess, but please don’t take my words out of context. [Laughter] Come on!
That’s a cheap shot, Sarah. But the separation of illegal alien families is a product of the same legal loopholes that democrats refused to close and these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade and the president is simply enforcing them. How can it be it a moral policy to take children away from their parents? Can you imagine the horror that these children must be going through… – It’s a moral policy to follow and enforce
the law. when they come across
the border, they’re with their parents – Jim and then suddenly they’re pulled away from
their parents. Why is the government doing this? Because it’s the law
and that’s what the law states. It doesn’t have to be the law. You guys don’t have to do that. It’s your
policy. You’re right, it doesn’t have to be the law and our president has actually called on Democrats in Congress to fix those loopholes. The democrats have failed to come to the table, failed to help this president close these
loopholes and fix this problem. We don’t want this to be a problem. The president has tried to address it on a number of occasions we’ve laid out a proposal and Democrats simply refuse to do their job and fix the problem.
