(Portland, OR)  --  Senator Jeff Merkley is speaking out after being refused entry to a Texas shelter where immigrant children are reportedly being kept away from their parents.  Merkley says he was turned away yesterday from an unaccompanied minors shelter at a border station in McAllen.  Merkley made the trip with local ACLU leaders following a Trump administration policy announced last month that he says separates children from their parents at the border and places them in different detention centers.  Merkley called the policy cruel, adding that "Americans should be outraged that taxpayer dollars are being used to inflict spiteful and traumatizing policies on innocent children."
