Congressman David Scott Statement on Forced Family Separations

Washington, June 19, 2018

Today, Congressman David Scott (GA-13) released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s forced family separation policy:

“I strongly condemn and stand against the Trump Administration’s cruel policy of separating children, some as young as 4-months old, from their families at the U.S. border with Mexico. It is immoral and inhumane to use children as leverage and a political bargaining piece. Families belong together. This is why I am co-sponsoring the “Keeping Families Together Act” to establish clear policy prohibiting forced family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border and encouraging family unification. I hope for the future of our great nation, and for the well-being of all of the children who have been separated from their families, that we here in Washington can work together and find a bipartisan solution to this terrible situation.”
