[July 11, 2018 Letter to the Chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary of the U.S. House of Representatives Bob Goodlatte]   [open pdf - 136KB]

From the Letter: "We write to request that the Judiciary Committee immediately schedule an oversight hearing with Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. The Committee has thus far failed to exercise its oversight responsibilities with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the 115th Congress. This failure has grown even more indefensible as the Nation has watched the horrors caused by the Department's implementation of President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy. [...] The need for a DHS oversight hearing is made even more urgent by the fact that thousands of children remain separated from their parents. [...] The unfortunate reality is that under the present system migrant children are not accounted for with the same efficiency and accuracy as 'property'."
