Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Sunday that the United States would never recover from the “stain” of deporting young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, who are often called “Dreamers.”
During a Sunday show interview, Sanders said their deportations would be “one of the ugliest stains” in American history.
“If we allow Trump to get away with what he did, and that is repeal the executive order on DACA, and if these 800,000 people, young people, are subjected to deportation, this will be one of the ugliest stains in the history of the United States,” Sanders told CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Should the U.S. deport the immigrants, Sanders said the country will “never recover.”
“Young people who know no other country than this country, who came here at 2 or 3 years of age, to now be subjected to deportation would be a stain that this country would never recover from,” Sanders said.
