Press Release

OMAHA, NE- Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02) released the following statement regarding family separation at the border:

"Families are the heart of our society and way of life. We should not be separating them at the border because of outdated and broken immigration policies, but instead protecting them by finding suitable shelter and speeding up the adjudication process. However, we cannot allow those involved in sex trafficking or those with criminal or terrorist ties to walk right in with people who simply want a better life. We expect to vote on two pieces of immigration legislation which will not only prioritize border security, but end family separation and curb illegal immigration."
