Congresswoman dismayed that no official plan has been announced; Meng sends letter to the President
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) today called on President Trump to provide details on how and when his administration will reunify families who were separated at the border.
“The President failed to include in his executive order any explanation on how and when to reunite the estimated 2,300 children who were taken away from their parents and I’m deeply troubled and dismayed that a day after he signed it, there is still no clear plan to reunite families,” said Meng. “Families who were separated by this administration when they crossed the border must be reunited as soon as possible and I call on the President to put forward an official plan to do so. It is unacceptable and inhumane that families continue to remain apart. Their nightmares must finally end.”
Yesterday, Meng sent a letter to the President calling on him to explain how families will be reunited, and to end family separations as quickly as possible. A copy of the letter can be viewed here.
