Statement from U.S. Rep. John Katko Regarding Family Separations at Border
SYRACUSE, NY — U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today released the following statement regarding family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border:
“We must keep our borders secure, however, we must do so in a humane way that preserves family unity and keeps young children safe. I urge the Administration to prioritize these principles in enforcing the laws of this country.
“Congress must also continue to work towards a permanent legislative solution to fix our nation’s broken immigration system. Over the past several weeks, I have been a key negotiator on a compromise bill which emphasizes keeping families together, enhances border security and provides status for Dreamers. I’m hopeful that we can pass this measure through the House this week.”
