WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Wednesday in response to President Trump’s Executive Order ending the separation of migrant families who cross the border illegally while seeking asylum.

“Ending the separation of migrant families who cross the border illegally is a step in the right direction,” Sen. Lee said. “But to make this change permanent, Congress needs to act. We need to pass legislation to make sure the federal government has the proper authority and funding to house migrant families. We need to pass legislation to make sure the federal government has the resources needed for a swift and fair asylum adjudication process. I hope the Senate will do its job and take up a bill that addresses these issues.”
