Willie Nelson issued a statement on the separation of immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. The country-music icon and Texas native ripped the Department of Justice's policy under President Trump, calling it 'outrageous.' The issue of immigrant children crossing the Mexico-Texas border is not a new concern of Nelson's. In 2014, he said 'I've been watching, and the only thing we can do is take care of those kids, whatever it takes. They're scared. They're being mistreated. And it's not a good way to start off your life. But it's a good opportunity for us to show a little bit of humanitarianism and take care of those kids. …Treat those kids like they were your kids.'
