WATCH: Watters Debates Donna Brazile on Separating Children From Parents at US-Mexico Border
Former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile joined The Five to discuss the immigration crisis and separation of some children from their parents at the Mexican border.
"This should not be a partisan issue," said Brazile, who served as former Sen. Al Gore's (D-Tenn.) 2000 presidential campaign manager.
Brazile said that both past and present administrations bear some responsibility for the crisis.
While she agreed with Jesse Watters that both a Clinton-era immigration law and an Obama-era child trafficking law have led to some of the issues, Brazile said the Trump administration decided to "change [the] enforcement" proceedings of the law.
"This is a change in policy," she said.
Watters asked what the Democratic solution is, adding that the only other alternative is full-scale "catch-and-release" of asylum seekers.
Brazile and Watters however both agreed that the immigration system is "broken" but the Democrat added that both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Donald Trump should have "seen it coming" as much as past presidents.
