O'Malley on Obama's refugee raids: 'What the hell have we come to as a country?'

'This is not an immigration issue. This is a humanitarian issue, a refugee issue: people fleeing violence should be treated as such. But the Obama administration has nonetheless kicked off the new year with a series of raids to round up and deport Central American women and children.

Martin O'Malley summed it up best during this video of a Q/A in Iowa Sunday:

"What the hell have we come to as a country that you're talking about rounding up women and children fleeing death gangs at Christmas time?"

Amen, Martin. In fact, both O'Malley and Bernie Sanders came out with strong statements opposing this misbegotten policy when it was first leaked to the Washington Post two weeks ago, just days before Christmas. Unfortunately, the Democratic frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, was content to let a spokesperson note that the candidate had "real concerns" about the reports.'>>>
