Senator Dianne Feinstein explained the legislation would prevent the Department of Homeland Security from taking children from their parents at the border.

 

 

The Keep Families Together Act, supported by Senator Kamala Harris and several other Senators, would ensure the federal government is acting in the best interest of children. Feinstein insisted Congress has a moral obligation to take a stand and say that families shouldn’t be forcibly separated.

    I am very much in favor of the Keep Families Together Act and I feel ashamed to think that President Trump thinks this is a good idea. How would he feel if it was his family. It’s so disgraceful to think that as a nation we could do this. Please do everything you can to pass this bill. Keep families together and keep children with their mothers.

    I am a Marriage and Family therapist. I have learned that my organization, Californi Association of Marriage Therapists supports your bill. Although they do that in my name I want to add my personal support to you and your Keep Families Together Act. That my Government is causing this trauma to children disturbs me greatly.

    Thank you Diane for attempting to stop this horrible Trump policy of separating children from their parents. This is not America and I am ashamed and angry at what the Trump/Sessions agenda is doing to this country.
