WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today after President Trump signed an executive order to keep migrant families together at the border:

“President Trump recognized that we need to do what’s in the best interest of the children.  Clearly, what’s in the best interest of the children is to allow them to remain with their parents,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “At the same time, we’re in this situation because people are trying to jump the line and come into this country illegally.  We cannot let them jump the line, but we can enforce the law without separating children from their parents.”
