All four former first ladies have joined the current one, Melania Trump, in an unusual united political front expressing horror at children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” Bush said on Twitter as she shared her column.
Laura Bush almost never speaks out on public issues.
There’s huge pressure on both the President and Congress to find a solution.
