Thursday, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the following statement on the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General report on the Trump Administration’s family separation policy:

“This report confirms what we already knew: that the Trump Administration intended to separate families at the border. They knew the consequences and did it anyway. Administration leaders did not coordinate the policy among agencies or plan for basic measures to help the children traumatized by this policy. Years later, hundreds of families have yet to be reunited and this Administration has hardly lifted a finger to help them.

“The Trump Administration will forever be known for its cruelty and disregard for the well-being of these families and children. Thankfully, in just one week we will have a new Administration that has promised to finally help reunite these children. Help can’t come soon enough.”
