Gillibrand Says She’d Eliminate Immigrant Detention System

Written by on May 19, 2019

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said Sunday she’d eliminate the detention system for immigrants awaiting asylum claims in court, saying if released with a court date and a lawyer, they’d show up.

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Gillibrand, who’s among a large field of Democratic candidates for president, said the detained immigrants “don’t need to be incarcerated.”

“As president of the United States, I wouldn’t use the dentition system at all,” she said adding: They can — if they’re given a lawyer and given a process, they will follow it. They can go into the community in the way we used to handle these cases under the Department of Justice.” 

She also blasted President Donald Trump for having ““started a war on American women.”

“This is nothing short of an all-out assault on women’s reproductive freedom,” she said of a new wave of anti-abortion bills being passed in the South and Midwest.
