Van Hollen Releases Statement on DHS Deportation Raids

Congressman Van Hollen on the Purple Line 450 x 280U.S. Rep. Chris Van Hollen has released a statement about the Department of Homeland Security’s deportation raids.

You can read his statement, below:

“The Department of Homeland Security’s renewed effort to deport families and children is the wrong approach that’s causing unthinkable heartache for hardworking immigrant families who fear being separated. When families come to America fleeing for their lives, they should be treated in a manner consistent with our nation’s founding ideals – not like the dangerous felons who should instead be the focus of enforcement. That’s why I’ve been fighting for comprehensive immigration reform, and Congress must act to finally fix our broken immigration system.”
