U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, released a statement Wednesday morning that said he was “alarmed by the recent reports coming from the U.S.-Mexico border.”
Media outlets nationwide have released alleged photos and stories in the past few days about immigrant families being separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.
President Donald Trump briefed House Republicans on Tuesday night about several issues, including a House-passed immigration bill, according to a news release from Kinzinger’s office. Kinzinger serves the 16th Congressional District, which is made of up of 14 counties and stretches from Illinois’ northern to eastern borders.
“As I’ve said before, the practice of separating children from their parents at the border must end – and it should have ended long ago,” the release stated.
Kinzinger said he would support a stand-alone resolution now.
