Democrats slam Trump's executive order for detaining families 'indefinitely'

The move, some Democrats argued, simply detains illegal immigrants "indefinitely."

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., tweeted Wednesday night that the executive order "merely replaces one inhumane act with another."

"In response to the overwhelming public outrage at his policy of tearing children away from their parents at the border, this administration thinks the appropriate response is to indefinitely detain families," Sanders said.

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, of California, shared similar sentiments, tweeting: "It’s extremely troubling that the president’s executive order would require immigrant families with children to be detained indefinitely."

The separations stem from the administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which aims to prosecute all illegal border crossers.
