Washington, D.C.— Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) joined House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and 188 House Democrats in introducing the “Keep Families Together Act,” legislation that will end family separation at the U.S. border. This legislation is the House companion to the bill introduced by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) earlier this month.
“We must do everything in our power to end the immoral and inhumane Trump administration policy that is causing families to be torn apart at our borders,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “That is why I am proud to join my colleagues supporting the Keep Families Together Act, which would prevent the Department of Homeland Security from separating children from their families at the border. This goes against everything we stand for as Americans, and I will keep fighting to ensure this barbaric policy ends. I urge my colleagues across the aisle to join us and move quickly to pass this critical legislation before more families suffer and more children are lost within our broken immigration system. It is not only the moral thing to do – it is the American thing to do.”
