In case you missed it, U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) joined CBS’ Face the Nation with Margaret Brennan on Sunday to highlight the clear distinction between President Biden’s and former President Trump’s border policies.
Senator Coons, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, praised President Biden’s commitment to effective actions that will address the situation at the border, while former President Trump has promoted cruel and ineffective family separations, a Muslim ban, and potential mass deportations of millions living here.

Senator Coons: There’s a stark difference in the values that President Biden and former President Trump bring to trying to address the issue of border security and immigration. I’ll remind you, Margaret, that former President Trump tried to implement a Muslim ban. A ban on entry to this country explicitly based on one religion. He also used cruelty – the forceful separation of parents from their children and the caging of children at our border – to try and deter folks from coming to seek asylum or to seek refuge in our country. 

President Biden has, time and time again, asked Congress to enact a broad solution to our border security and immigration challenges. 

Former President Trump tried to use gimmicks like building a border wall, and is now threatening to nationalize, to federalize, the National Guard, and use it to deport tens of millions of people already here in the United States. The difference between Trump’s approach and Biden’s approach is one of cruelty versus effectiveness.
