MSNBC’s Soboroff: ‘No One Has Treated Migrants More Inhumanely Than the Trump Administration’

MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff noted that although migrants dying to cross the United States border isn’t new, “nobody has treated migrants more inhumanely than the Trump administration.”

“I want everybody to remember that 7,000 people have died trying to come into this country since 1998,” Soboroff said. “The failures of our border policy as Americans have been systemic literally for decades in Democratic and Republican administrations. Nobody has treated migrants more inhumanely than the Trump administration, but this is a problem that has been festering literally for decades.”

Soboroff was speaking with Chris Jansing on MSNBC Live Wednesday morning who talked about another reported drowning at the border just days after a viral photo of a migrant father and daughter who drowned trying to cross the border.

“Again, this is another horrific story of a family who just wanted to escape their lives where they were to come for a better life,” Soboroff said.

“This reportedly was a Haitian national with a child who was a Brazilian national crossing the Rio Grande. They were separated in the river and a search is ongoing right now by the Border Patrol,” he continued.
