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.
