Washington, DC – Today, Appropriations Committee member Representative Lois Frankel (FL-21) released the following statement after voting to send necessary resources to support the children and families being held in detention centers on our southern border:


“We must send immediate relief and aid to children living in inhumane conditions on our southern border. The cruel treatment they have suffered goes against our American values and all human decency. Although the legislation is not perfect, we are providing hurting boys and girls with critical resources like diapers, food, and medicine. My vote is for the children.”


In June 2018, Rep. Frankel visited the southern border and met with migrants who were being held in detention centers. Read more about her firsthand experience here.
