(Brownsville, TX)  --  Senator Jeff Merkley is speaking out against the Trump administration policy of separating asylum-seeking parents from their children.  After touring an immigration detention facility in Texas, the Oregon Democrat said it's "completely unacceptable" to inflict trauma on children to send a message to adults.  He also said hurting kids for political leverage is "evil."  The Trump administration has adopted a policy of "zero tolerance" for illegal immigration.  However, Merkley called it a policy of "zero humanity."  Merkley was joined by other lawmakers like Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen and Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
