Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) cosponsored the Family Reunification Act, legislation to reunite children who were separated from their parents along the southern border.

“A critical component of our immigration policy must be keeping families united,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “As we work to pass immigration reform that strengthens our border and addresses DACA, I am pleased to join in support of this important legislation to reunite children that were recently separated from their parents.”

This legislation requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to reunite unaccompanied alien children with the parents or legal guardians with whom they entered the United States. Click here for bill text.
