TI Says "ashamed to be an American!!!" In Light of Trump Immigration Policies
The Trump Administration set into play policies that will separate children from migrant parents who cross the United States’ southern border without authorization. Right now... TI ain't having it.. He stated on his IG:
"I’m literally sick to my stomach about these babies being snatched out of the arms of their mothers!!! It’s a travesty of enormous proportions that MUST BE PUT TO AN END!!!! We ALL HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!!!! I’m ashamed to be an American!!!"
According to the New York Times "Top officials from the White House, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security argued that a series of court rulings and laws that existed when Mr. Trump took office had essentially given them no choice but to carry out a policy that many human rights groups have condemned as inhumane."
Democrats blame Trump’s administration for losing track of nearly 1,500 immigrant kids.
Attorney General for the United States Jeff Sessions, the same person that said slavery was justified by the bible stated the following:
"If you cross the Southwest border unlawfully, then the Department of Homeland Security will arrest you and the Department of Justice will prosecute you. That is what the law calls for — and that is what we are going to do," Sessions said. "Having children does not give you immunity from arrest and prosecution."
and it's refreshing to see Hip Hop standing up for issues like this.. let's hope this trend will continue.. TI isn't alone in making his voice heard, also Big Boi of Outkast and Cardi B have chimed in on the issue..
