Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), in an appearance on NBC on Sunday, compared the situation of a Thai soccer team, trapped in a cave by rising waters, to the status of migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Asked about President Trump’s upcoming Supreme Court pick, Durbin decided to talk about the relationship between the two groups.

“Hearts and prayers are with those boys in Thailand, trapped in the cave,” he said. “I hope our hearts and prayers are also with thousands of children, toddlers and infants, removed from their parents by the Trump administration.”

“They’re trapped in a bureaucratic cave too,” he added.

Thai Navy SEALs began the process of rescuing the boys on Sunday, successfully retrieving four from the cave.

President Trump tweeted on Sunday that Americans were aiding in the rescue.
