Throughout the course of his campaign, President Donald Trump vowed to crack down on illegal immigration. Unfortunately, rather than focusing on criminals, Trump’s administration is wasting its time deporting a mother and her five-year-old son. The mother applied for refugee status because she witnessed gang members kill her cousin in Honduras. She fled because she and her child’s lives were in danger.

In order to draw attention to this case, Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) took to Twitter to tweet about the deportation and update his followers on the family’s status.

Perhaps the most upsetting thing about this story isn’t the fact that they were targeted for deportation. It’s the fact that the Department of Homeland Security rushed the deportation through despite knowing the family was obtaining the proper paperwork.

As Casey points out, this doesn’t make the U.S. safer. These people weren’t criminals, they were fleeing from criminals. It’s nothing more than the cowardly act of a bully.

Casey’s interview with MSMBC can be seen below.
