“We ran on a policy — quite simply — stop mass illegal immigration and limit legal immigration, get our sovereignty back to help, our staff, and so he went to a zero-tolerance policy,” said Bannon. “It is to bump a crime, illegal and children separately. I mean, I hate to say it, this is the law and he is enforcing the law.”
