John Kelly defends separating immigrant families, saying 'name of the game is deterrence'

President Trump's chief of staff John Kelly defended the technique of separating undocumented immigrants from their children as a necessary evil in the administration's effort to increase border security during an interview with National Public Radio Thursday.
Kelly told NPR that "the vast majority" of the immigrants "are not bad people."
"They're not criminals. They're not MS-13," Kelly said. "But they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our modern society. They're overwhelmingly rural people."
He said they are poorly educated, don't speak English — "obviously that's a big thing" — and don't have skills, so they "don't integrate well."
"They're not bad people," Kelly repeated. "They're coming here for a reason. And I sympathize with the reason. But the laws are the laws."
In the effort to enforce U.S. border laws, "a big name of the game is deterrence," he explained. And separating families "could be a tough deterrent."
