Rep Speier, Members of Congress to Debrief Media on Investigation of Texas Border Facilities Used in Family Separation Policy

Washington, DC - Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D- CA) will be joined by several of her colleagues to debrief the media on the June 23, 2018 congressional delegation to investigate several Texas border facilities near McAllen and Brownsville, Texas. The delegation, hosted by Congressmen Filemon Vela (D-TX) and Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), spoke with children and parents that have been ripped apart by President Donald Trump’s and Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ cruel family separation policy. The Members will share what they discovered in their investigation of these sites, and what next steps should be taken to ensure that all families are reunited and that the Trump Administration’s zero tolerance policy comes to an immediate end.
