Harris: Conducting ICE Raids Shortly After El Paso ‘Shows a Level of Insensitivity and Callousness’

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” 2020 presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) stated that conducting ICE raids shortly after the El Paso shooting “shows a level of insensitivity and callousness that should not be traits of the president of the United States.”

Harris said, “[T]hese most recent raids, hundreds of people who are now separated from their families for at least 24 hours, and causing people in our country to be in fear, and in particular, the Latino community. People are in fear all over the country. When you combine those raids with what just happened in El Paso, and again, do you think that this administration, and this president might step back and say, wait a minute, after what just happened in El Paso, when it was motivated by hate against immigrants and Latino immigrants, do you think that a responsible leader would have said, don’t do those raids? That — it’s just — it shows a level of insensitivity and callousness that should not be traits of the president of the United States.”
