[Ed. – And Khamenei knows from evil.]

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday waded into the controversy surrounding separations of illegal immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border, deploring images of crying children and saying the policy shows how “evil” the Americans are.

“Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of children from their mothers in America makes a person exasperated,” Khamenei told a group of lawmakers. “But the Americans separate the children from the immigrant parents with complete maliciousness.”

“One cannot watch with a sound state of mind these children crying on TV,” he said, according to a report on an official website, khamenei.ir. “How can they commit such a crime of separating children from their mothers for the excuse of implementing some policy? This shows how evil they really are.”
