Washington, D.C. – Congressman John Culberson (TX-07) today issued the following statement on the border crisis and family separations.

“It’s very unfortunate for these children that their parents chose to break the law, but young children should not be separated from their parents. I’m committed to finding a solution that preserves the respect for the rule of law and secures our borders while being compassionate to these young children.

“I believe that we must enforce our immigration laws and secure our borders. Currently, an existing court order prevents children of illegal immigrants from remaining with their parents until the parents can have their day in court. As a result, the government must either release the parents without any consequence for breaking the law or separate these families.

“I’m ready to work with my colleagues to find a solution.”
