In the video, Dawson states that the Trump administration violated international law by detaining migrants at the border who were legally seeking asylum. Moore adds that the administration created a humanitarian crisis by separating the families and putting children in cages.
The video also features quotes from Sergio Cordova, a Team Brownsville volunteer leader, as well as a pregnant migrant, who says she walked from town to town until she was grabbed by immigration. Another refugee explains that he and his family left Honduras because of the gang violence and “suffering.”
“The administration talks about how we need to keep people away, but if we no longer care about people and humanity, then evil has already won,” says Cordova. “We become evil as a people.”
Moore issues a last urging to vote for Democrats in the Nov. 6 midterm elections to end the humanitarian crisis at the border.
