( - Sen. Cory Booker (D.-N.J.), a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, put out a Tweet on Wednesday night saying that the Trump administration was “continuing to terrorize immigrants.”

“Don’t look away—the Trump Administration is continuing to terrorize immigrants and separate families,” Booker said in his Tweet. “This is a moment of moral crisis in our country—we must do better.”

The Tweet featured a link to an Associated Press story about U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials arresting illegal aliens working at food processing plants in Mississippi.

“U.S. immigration officials say raids at seven food processing plants in Mississippi resulted in 680 arrests,” said the AP story.

“Authorities say about 600 agents fanned out across the plants, surrounding the perimeters to prevent workers from fleeing,” said the AP. “They targeted several companies.”
