Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) grilled Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday for the administration’s policy of separating kids from their parents.
Harris asked Nielsen at a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental affairs committee hearing on national security needs and authorities if President Trump directed her “to separate parents from children as a method of deterrence of undocumented immigration?”
The article goes on to state the following:
Nielsen answered that she had not been directed to do so “for purposes of deterrence.”
Asked why she is separating families, Nielsen said her decision “has been that anyone who breaks the law will be prosecuted.”
“If you are a parent or you are a single person or you happen to have a family, if you cross between the ports of entry, we will refer you for prosecution,” Nielsen said. “You have broken U.S. law.”

The White House wants to pour billions of dollars into ICE’s detention facilities, places where we know human rights abuses are being perpetrated. Enough is enough. Today, I’m introducing the DONE Act with @RepJayapal to prohibit the expansion or construction of new facilities.
