TMZ Sports asked UFC President Dana White this week about children and parents being separated when trying to illegally cross the United States-Mexico border.
White said the policy was set before President Donald Trump came into office, adding it was a “sad” situation because children should never be taken from their parents.
“I don’t think anybody likes it. I don’t even think Trump likes it, to be honest with you. I think it’s something that was set in place and I think it’s just coming to light right now and [it’s] very sad. There should never be a scenario where you take kids away from their parents for any reason whatsoever, ever, ever.” White told the reporter.
He added, “They’d have to shoot me to take my kids.”
