Corker and Alexander oppose separating families
Last week they came out in opposition to hikes in tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump and now U.S. Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee have issued statements criticizing the Trump administration policy of separating children detained at the U.S./Mexico border from their parents. "While the issues surrounding our immigration system are complex, we can all agree that innocent children should be protected and not used for deterrence," said Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He said the administration "should use all tools available to stop needless family separation without delay, and Congress should act swiftly to address the serious challenges facing our nation's immigration system." Alexander said in his statement, "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."
