Gillibrand Wants to Let ALL Asylum Seekers Stay in the U.S. and Eliminate Detention Centers

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand joined moderator Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” to talk about the anti-abortion law passed in Alabama and the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

In a shocking proposal far more radical than what Obama did, Gillibrand said she would have no detention centers and instead let all asylum seekers wait in the United States in communities while their claims are reviewed.

“I wouldn’t keep them in detention at all” said Gillibrand “What I would do is fund anti-terrorism ….and I would defund these for-profit prison systems.”


The official video of Gillibrand is quite unpopular on YouTube with more than twice the thumbs down than thumbs up.

The top comments also say it all.
