Demand our Senators attend the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on family separations at the border

July 29, 2018

The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on Tuesday, July 31, 10am ET, on the family separation policy at the border. The Senate has the responsibility of overseeing federal agencies. Finally, the Judiciary Committee is calling immigration officials to account for their cruel and irresponsible acts in separating migrant children from their parents at the border.

Will you ask your members to call your Senators to participate in this oversight hearing? What you can do:

If your Senator is not on the Judiciary Committee, you can call or email him/her to attend the hearing and to ask Committee members to thoroughly examine the immigration officials.

Suggested Script (Senator not on Judiciary Committee): Hi, my name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [zip code]. I'm calling to ask the Senator to attend the Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration on Tuesday, July 31 at 10am. Please urge Committee members to find out how this cruel family separation happened and how these families will be reunited. I have been so worried and appalled by our government's treatment of these young children and their parents. The children might be damaged for life. Please make these immigration agencies take responsibility and fix the situation. 

If your Senator is on the Judiciary Committee, lucky you, you can ask him/her to grill the immigration officials on what they have done and how they plan to fix it. Your group can also submit questions to your Senator that he/she can ask the immigration officials. A list of Senators on the Judiciary Committee is here: https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/about/members.
