Stephen Colbert gets serious about lasting effects of Trump’s family separation policy

On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Wednesday night, Colbert took a break from the jokes for a few minutes and spoke seriously and passionately about the lasting effects of the Trump administration’s family separation policy. After thousands of children had been separated from their parents, last year a federal judge ordered the families reunited. But it was recently reported that the parents of 545 children cannot be located, partly due to the fact that many have been deported. Colbert’s rage wasn’t just reserved for President Trump, but also for former Attorney General Jeff Session and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, both of whom were key in implementing the policy. Colbert said that this cruel policy is on the ballot this election, and implored the American people to collectively condemn the policy and the administration behind it with their vote.
