Hillary Clinton: Trump’s Cruel Family Separation a ‘Dark Hour in America’ 

Monday at England’s University of Oxford, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said President Donald Trump’s immigration policies have brought about a “dark hour in America.”

Clinton said, “Fundamental rights, civic virtue, even facts and reason are under assault. And as we have been painfully reminded in my own country, the consequences are severe. Over the past few weeks, Americans from every political background, ideology, religion and walk of life have watched heartbroken and outraged as immigrant families are ripped apart.”

She added, “Children as young as infants, three months, eight months, babies one and two years, toddlers are treated cruelly as political pawns. Yet even in this dark hour in America, we are witnessing an outpouring of moral conviction, civic engagement, a commitment to standing up for the most vulnerable among us.”
