( – On Sunday, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) criticized former President Trump over his “hateful, fascist” remarks regarding immigration.

CBS’s Margaret Brennan recently questioned Coons about Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D-N.J.) decision to oppose the Democratic Party’s border policies proposal. In response Coons argued that he understood that Menendez was passionate about the immigration system being “safe, legal and humane,” however the people needed to focus on how significantly worse Trump’s immigration policies were than those followed by President Joe Biden. Coons also pointed out that on Saturday Trump had remarked that immigrants were “poisoning the blood of our country” and that such comments were an example of the policies that Trump would be following.

However, Coons argued that as he has previously stated regarding campaigning for the 2024 election, Biden should not be compared to what would be considered the perfect or ideal alternative, but rather he needed to be compared to the actual alternative that existed. As he argued on “Face the Nation” Biden was facing Trump’s “hateful, fascist rhetoric” where he argued that immigration was poison to America’s blood.

Coons argued that former President Donald Trump would not make “modest changes to asylum policy” but instead would bring about radical changes to the immigration policies, which needs to be carefully considered when considering the border security crisis that is currently going on. He added that it was important for the people to take responsible steps that were a reflection of the values of the United States.
