Congressman Bob Brady statement on Trump administration’s family separation policy

Jun 19, 2018

Philadelphia --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) today released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s family separation policy:

“I have fought for a humane immigration policy by fighting for sanctuary, opposing deportations, and pressing for changes in our laws. And, as a father, I’m appalled by the disgraceful Trump policy of ripping babies out of their mothers’ arms.

How in good conscience can the U.S. allow immigrant children to be torn away from their parents and put in cages? There is no satisfactory rationale for this! What is the trauma that these children and their parents are experiencing in the land of the free and the brave?” We cannot remain silent. We must act.”
