A 69-year-old man from Maryland called into C-SPAN during their open lines segment to rant about immigration.
He made time to call in right before grabbing some coffee. “I’m at the WaWa getting a cup of coffee,” he said.
He compared children being separated from their parents at the border, to a mom being held without bail.
“It’s basically the same thing he said,” the man said. Right before he hung up, he called it “ridiculous” that people were comparing President Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy to Nazis.

Will Trump meet Iran’s Rouhani at UN?
Will US President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani finally hold a historic meeting during the UN General Assembly this week?
All eyes are on the pair in New York, where France's Emmanuel Macron is cautiously hopeful for a breakthrough.
Building the suspense, Macron revealed that he consulted informally Monday with Trump, will see Rouhani on Monday evening, and will again see Trump on Tuesday.
"I'll do everything I can so that conditions are created for discussion," he told reporters.
Tehran and Washington have been at loggerheads since May last year when Trump abandoned a 2015 nuclear deal and began reimposing sanctions on Iran in a campaign of "maximum pressure."
The term ‘evangelical’ has crumbled into meaninglessness in the era of Trump: professor
As the evangelical Christian movement began to rise in politics before the 1980 election, there was a fork in the road that forced the self-described "Moral Majority" to make a decision in regards to which candidate they supported: the devout Christian Jimmy Carter, or the divorced Hollywood actor Ronald Reagan.
Writing for the Atlantic, Baylor University professor of humanities Alan Jacobs says it was the Moral Majority's decision to go with Reagan that "inaugurated the affiliation of white American evangelicals with the Republican Party that has lasted to this day."
