Lipinski: Administration Border-Crossing Policy Regarding Children Must Change

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) issued the following statement today:

'I am deeply concerned about children being separated from their parents at border crossings. Enforcing our laws is important, but we must do it right and we must respect human rights. The Administration should ensure that their policies do not result in needless and traumatic separation of children from their families. No bond is as precious and vital as that between a child and their parent. When our nation's leaders dismiss the impact of their actions on parents and children, we lose sight of our principles and what this nation stands for.'
