TOMORROW: Congressional Hearing on Unaccompanied Children at the Border

(WASHINGTON) – Tomorrow, April 27th, the Subcommittee on Border Security, Facilitation, and Operations, chaired by Rep. Nanette Diaz Barragán (D-CA), will hold a virtual hearing with stakeholders regarding unaccompanied children at the border. This hearing will give Members an opportunity to hear from key witnesses to examine suggestions for improving our system for unaccompanied children. Members of the Committee are eager to move forward with solutions, given the devastation wrought by four years of the Trump Administration’s cruel and ineffective immigration policies.

This virtual hearing will be streamed live on YouTube and on our website.
