This is the July 12, 2019 hearing on "The Trump Administration's Child Separation Policy: Substantiated Allegations of Mistreatment" held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Elijah Cummings: "Today we examine the Trump administration's inhumane policy of separating children from their parents at the southern border. I use the word 'inhumane' for a reason. Separating children from their mothers and fathers causes damage that may endure for a lifetime. Let me let that sink in. In other words, until they die. The Trump administration adopted this child separation policy intentionally, purposefully, as a tactic to deter people from coming to the United States and seeking asylum." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Andy Biggs, Debbie Lesko, Veronica Escobar, Jennifer L. Costello, Ann Maxwell, Elora Mukherjee, Jennifer Nagda, and Thomas Homan.
