The deputy chief of staff to former Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., on Tuesday evening blasted President Trump for executive actions he is expected to take on Wednesday that would suspend immigration from some countries in the Middle East.

Adam Jentleson, who now works for the Center for American Progress Action Fund, said Trump policies would be to blame for deaths similar to that of a three-year-old Syrian boy whose photo he shared on Twitter.

“This is someone Trump would ban from entering America,” Jentleson tweeted.

The boy’s body washed up on a Turkish beach in early September and went viral for how it depicted the plight of those trying to escape violence in Syria for Europe.

Jentleson’s remark comes a day before Trump is expected to take executive action on refugee policy by barring them from several Middle Eastern countries, where the administration argues refugees cannot be properly vetted.
