One of the 23 Democrats running for President made some bold statements this weekend. Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand says that she would get rid off all detention of anyone who is caught illegally caught crossing the southern border. She says if those who are caught by border patrol were given a lawyer then they would show up for any court hearings.
"As president of the United States, I wouldn’t use the detention system at all," Gillibrand told host Margaret Brennan on CBS’s "Face the Nation."
"They don’t need to be incarcerated," she responded when further questioned. "If they are given a lawyer and given a process, they will follow it. They can go into the community in the way we used to handle these cases under the Department of Justice."
