Alexander Statement on Separation of Families at Border

Posted on June 19, 2018

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2018 – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the separation of children from their parents at the border:

“Illegal immigration is against the law but new enforcement policies have resulted in hundreds of children being separated from their parents. The administration should end that new policy immediately while Congress works with the president on a bipartisan immigration solution that secures the border, provides a status for those already here and prevents a humanitarian crisis at the border.”
