Congress today announced it’s intention to investigate the treatment of the children of families torn apart by enforcement of Immigration laws.
U.S. Rep. William Delahunt joined Sens. Edward Kennedy and John Kerry and U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, all Democrats, at a meeting of family members Sunday……..SOURCE
In a possible statement they noted:
” It is our intent and determination that innocent children should not suffer at the hands of heavy handed Government action.
Enforcement of immigration law has exacted a horrible toll on these kids and as responsible Government representatives we intend to protect the rights of these unfortunate victims of what we consider to be unnecessarily harsh Government treatment.”
“These families don’t understand why they are being treated this way. The children are suffering fear and mental anguish as their parents are being taken away from them and they find themselves destitute…..”
Enforcement of immigration law has exacted a horrible toll on these kids, and Congress can not stand by and do nothing.
“In this instance these folks were just trying to do a job, and found their families separated, their lives suddenly ruined, their homes gone, and six small children terrified about their uncertain future.
“On the eve of federal legislation being introduced to fix the broken system, we should not be using precious federal resources to tear up families and devastate our communities,” said Helena S. Marques, executive director of the Immigrant Assistance Center in New Bedford.Via Boston.com

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — U.S. Rep. William Delahunt said there will be a Congressional investigation into the immigration raid at a leather goods factory last week that left dozens of families in turmoil. Delahunt wants the subcommittee to look into U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement policies regarding the children and families of those arrested.
“There was no excuse for their not being absolutely 100 percent certain that children would not be victims,” Rep. Barney Frank said.
“The treatment and devastation at the hands of the Government of the 3 thousand or so families of those tasked with protecting our borders is their own problem.
As Democrats and Americans, we must show compassion for the children of 12 million
illegal aliens potential future constituents in our country.
Our concern is the well being of children of the criminal illegal aliens whose lives are destroyed by the government……not the children of the Law enforcement families whose lives are destroyed by the government.
When asked why only 2 Democrats had joined 70 Republicans co sponsoring a bill calling for an investigation into the Ramos and Compean arrest and prosecution…
Senator Kennedy might have added:
“Law enforcement families vote Republican anyway……….They can rot….”
