Congressman Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) joined over 190 of his colleagues to introduce legislation to put an end to the Trump Administration's policy of separating children from their parents when seeking asylum at the border. The Keep Families Together Act creates procedures to assist with the reunification of separated families and requires child welfare training for Customs and Border Patrol agents.
"All of God's children deserve to be treated with compassion. Ripping crying children from their parents fails this fundamental moral test," said Crist. "If the Trump Administration refuses to stop its inhumane policy of separating families at the border, Congress must act."
