Colbert Plays Devil's Advocate On The Issue Of Separating Immigrant Families

'Imprisoning children has been getting a lot of bad press recently."

The controversy over the Trump administration’s policy of separating immigrant families inspired “The Late Show” to come up with a new segment, which Stephen Colbert debuted on Monday night: “The Devil’s Advocate.”

Portraying Lucifer, Colbert said: “Imprisoning children has been getting a lot of bad press recently. But the prison – is that really the worst place for kids? I mean, have you been to a Chuck E. Cheese?”

“And these little criminals have got it made,” he added. “They learn how to flush a toilet, which is good, because the people defending this are full of crap.”
