This is the July 18, 2019 hearing on "Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin K. McAleenan" head before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Elijah Cummings: "Today, the committee is examining the Trump administration's inhumane policy of separating children from their parents at the border and the dangerous conditions in which they are being held. Last Friday, we issued a staff report summarizing data on children who were separated from their families by the Trump administration. This report was based on information that we forced the Trump administration to produce to the committee pursuant to bi-partisan subpoenas after they refused to provide it voluntarily for months. The report found that the administration's child separation policy was more harmful, more traumatic, and more chaotic than previously known. The report also describes specific case studies of 10 children who were separated by the Trump administration, including several who were under the age of two. We sent our report to the Department last week, and we will be asking our witness about these children this morning. Today, we will hear from Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan."
