WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, an independent commission of the United States federal government, established in 1957, responsible for investigating, and making recommendations dealing with civil rights issues in the United States, has mailed a letter to Jeff Sessions, sworn in as the 84th Attorney General of the United States on February 9, 2017, and Kristjen Nielsen, the sixth Secretary of Homeland Security, urging them to stop separating children from their families after crossing our southern border. The policy downplays the reality that many of the people coming to the U.S./Mexican border are desperately seeking asylum, fully within the parameters of America's immigration laws.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights views this policy as inhumane and opposes the best interests of families crossing the southern border. For more information about the Commission, please visit http://www.usccr.gov and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
