Republican Indian Congresswoman Jackie Walorski is reacting to the immigration debate.

Her office issued the following statement:

“We are a nation of laws, but we are also a nation of compassion. The policy of separating children from their parents who cross the border illegally fails to live up to our American ideals of respect and human dignity. I am working with my colleagues toward commonsense legislation to end this policy, secure our borders, and provide a long-term solution for Dreamers.”
