"broken laws," but we made an agreement in daca with these individuals. if you come out and do what you need to do, we will keep you here. now, as we always do, we are going back on our agreement. those children had no choice. let's think about that for a moment. you are condemning them. let me say this real quick and i'll let you go. let's say that those parents or whatever went into a bank and had the children with them and robbed the bank. are you going to put the kids in jail? i don't think so. that's what we have to look at. the compassionate heart.
