Caging children isn't "doing a fantastic job"

Donald Trump tells Chuck Todd, "We're doing a fantastic job under the circumstances."

I don't accept that — the government continues to separate kids from their parents, has stopped schooling these children, and now argues they don't need soap, toothbrushes, or even beds to sleep on.

Just this past weekend, the administration cavalierly threatened costly mass roundups of undocumented immigrants in 10 cities – an act that will cost millions in taxpayer dollars and separate more families, solely as a bargaining chip in political debates. And now brags about their compassion in a two week postponement.

Human lives. Your tax dollars. All for show.

Cruelty is not the answer.

Despite Lee Zeldin's pitch that all our problems are easily fixed if Democrats will work with Trump, none of the administration's proposed "fixes" would be so easy.

I recently spent four days at the Arizona border and here are some thoughts on how we can humanely, effectively work towards a solution:

I am running for NY-1 because I do believe there is a better path for America.

One that is fair. One that is civilized and does not put children in cages or otherwise highlight cruelty. Will you join me in fighting for this better path and contribute today?

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
