Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken out against President Trump‘s immigration policies saying that innocent children shouldn’t be used as pawns after photos emerged of them being held in detention cages.

Since the Trump administration announced its ‘zero tolerance’ policy in early May, more than 2,000 children have been forcibly removed taken from their parents at the US-Mexico border.

The government has faced withering critiques over images of some of the children in cages inside US Border Patrol processing stations.
