Gayle King of “CBS This Morning,” claimed that the Statue of Liberty was “weeping right now” over the separation of immigrant kids and their families.
King stated “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.”
“We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is the first stop for many undocumented families caught at the southern border. It’s where federal officials are trying to weed out criminals. An executive officer at the center told us a 55,000-square-foot facility can hold about 1,500 people. This is a very nondescript building. It’s not marked. And it is deliberately not marked. Yesterday, more than 1,000 people were being processed here. That includes more than 500 families and 197 unaccompanied children.”
