O'Malley Opposes Detention Centers for Families

"Martin O'Malley Criticizes 'Detention Camps' For Immigrant Families"

WASHINGTON -- Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley criticized the Obama administration -- albeit not by name -- on Friday for continuing to detain undocumented women and children.

"We should not be in the business of building barbed wire detention camps. Detentions are cruel, costly & against our values-esp for families," O'Malley, who is weighing a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, tweeted.

O'Malley also tweeted the link to a New York Times editorial published Friday calling for an end to the "immoral" practice of detaining families in deportation proceedings. "Let's lead with our principles & end them," he added in a second tweet.

2. 'O'Malley was also critical of the administration's response to the border crisis last year,

particularly efforts to quickly deport unaccompanied minors. He said last July that America should not send children back to countries where "they will face certain death."

O'Malley's stance on unaccompanied minors contrasted with a statement from Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who said last June that the children should be sent back to their native countries after a review. O'Malley's campaign touted his stance on unaccompanied minors after Clinton gave a well-received remarks on immigration earlier this month.

Clinton's precise stance as a candidate on family detention isn't entirely clear.'
