[June 1, 2018 Letter to the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Neisen and Attorney General of the Department of Justice Jeff Sessions]   [open pdf - 240KB]

From the Letter: "We are disappointed that Secretary Nielsen's previously planned appearance for June 7, 2018 before the House Judiciary Committee has been cancelled, which compels us to write this letter seeking immediate information and a briefing by your agencies on the humanitarian crisis that is playing out along our Nation's border. The Administration's recent implementation of a 'zero tolerance' policy towards border crossers apprehended between ports of entry has resulted in the criminalization of asylum seekers and a drastic increase in family separation. As Members of the House Judiciary Committee, we take seriously our oversight responsibilities and believe that it is imperative that you immediately provide us with additional information about the impetus for, and the impact of, these new policies."
