Jacob Monty thought Trump wanted to solve the immigrant problem instead of making it worse. Monty, who was a member of President Trump’s former Hispanic Advisory Council, is livid about the current policy that separates kids from their parents at the border. He said last year, the president seemed to want to work with a variety of groups to improve the lives of immigrants. Monty thinks the president is making some serious mistakes on immigration that will have many long-term impacts.
