“Every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged,” Clinton said.

The separations stem from a policy that turns all cases of people trying to enter the country illegally over for criminal prosecution. Children are not detained with their parents when those parents are facing a criminal charge, as per US protocol.

President Donald Trump has defended the policy, which has taken nearly 2000 immigrant children away from their parents.
