Sanders and O’Malley slam holiday-season immigration raids in Iowa
Fox News Latino | Jan 10, 2016
Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley used a liberal forum in Iowa on Saturday to rail against holiday-season raids seeking Central American immigrants for deportation.
Before about 1,000 people packed into a Des Moines church, Sanders said that while he works closely with President Barack Obama, “I do not agree with him on his policy toward deportation.” And O’Malley bemoaned the timing of the raids, stating that “Jesus himself was a refugee child.”
Both candidates had previously criticized the raids, which first became public when The Washington Post published a story about the plans just before Christmas.
