Arnold Schwarzenegger Slams Trump's Immigration Policy

Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken out against President Trump's immigration policies saying that innocent children shouldn't be used as pawns after photos emerged of them being held in detention cages.

Since the Trump administration announced its 'zero tolerance' policy in early May, more than 2,000 children have been forcibly removed taken from their parents at the US-Mexico border.

The government has faced withering critiques over images of some of the children in cages inside US Border Patrol processing stations.

'As an immigrant, I know the magnetic power of America's greatness. As a former border Governor, I know the importance of securing our border and fixing our absurdly broken immigration system. As an American, I know that kids shouldn't be pawns while the 'adults' figure it out,' Schwarzenegger tweeted on Tuesday.

'The administration is right that we need to fix our immigration system. But if anybody is going to be in a cage while we wait for a comprehensive reform, let's make it the politicians who don't do their jobs in the cages, not innocent kids.'

It comes after the Associated Press reported that Trump administration officials have been sending immigrant babies and other young children to at least three 'tender age' shelters in South Texas.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis.
