MINNESOTA – Congressman Keith Ellison today released the following statement, regarding the Trump Administration’s policy of separating children from their parents at America’s border, when those families come to our country lawfully seeking asylum from violence in their home countries.

“The Trump Administration’s policy of separating children from their families is heartless, cruel, and immoral,” said Ellison. “As your Attorney General, I will defend the human and civil rights of all families, including our immigrant families and those seeking safe, legal asylum from violence in their home countries. I urge the Trump Administration to reverse their decision to inflict this traumatic cruelty on children and families.”
