Congressman Morgan Griffith on Immigration

“No one wants to see children separated from loving parents. I am looking for a solution to this dilemma that creates a balance between protecting our borders and the well-being of children. There is language in a compromise immigration bill currently being debated in the halls of Congress that may create such a balance. Further, I will support a stand-alone bill that would ensure children would not be separated from their loving parents.

“In the meantime, I would encourage the President to look for a short-term administrative fix. I am hopeful that Congress can reach a fair, just, and equitable long-term solution to the problem.”
