Rep. Bass, co-sponsor of Bill to counter Trump Separation of Children Demands DHS Chief Nielsen's Resignation

Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) has called for the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen because of her role in the separation of immigrant families at the border.

“Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen must resign because of the human rights abuses our country has committed under her watch at our border. Under her leadership, the Department of Homeland Security has carried out state-sanctioned child abuse and yesterday, she took to the White House press podium and lied to the American people about her department’s involvement," Rep. Bass said.

“It’s time to end the lies and end the deception," Bass added.

The Trump policy of separating children from parents crossing into the U.S., including those fleeing from violence, has been widely condemned including by Amnesty International. The policy was ordered by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Rep. Bass is a cosponsor of the Keep Families Together Act, which would prohibit border officials from separating children from their parents, except in extraordinary circumstances, restrict the prosecution of parents who are asylum seekers by adopting the recommendation of the DHS Office of Inspector General, and require all CBP officers and agents to complete child welfare training on an annual basis.
