Pallone on HHS Inspector General Report on Family Separations

Jan 17, 2019
Press Release

Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) today issued the following statement in response to Health and Human Services (HHS) Inspector General announcing the Trump Administration separated thousands more children than previously known:

“This troubling report today from HHS’s Office of Inspector General raises new questions of whether this Administration was pursuing its Family Separation Policy earlier than previously reported. It is yet another reason why I will be holding the first oversight hearing in Congress on this inhumane policy in the coming weeks. It’s been eight months since this policy came to light, and it’s time to finally get some answers.”
