Eshoo to Administration: Where are the Children?

June 22nd, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C— Today Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) sent a letter to Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar regarding the children placed in the care of HHS as a result of the Trump Administration’s zero-tolerance policy. In her letter, Eshoo requests information as to whether any of the children have been transported and are currently being housed in the 18th Congressional District.

The Executive Order signed by the President does not provide any guidance as to how the approximately 2,500 young children that have been disbursed across the country will be reunited with their parents. Eshoo’s letter inquires what steps HHS is taking to ensure that the children are reunited with their parents.

“Press reports indicate as many as 2,500 children have been separated from their parents, however HHS, has not been forthcoming about where and in what conditions the children are being housed, and how the Administration plans to reunite them with their families,” Eshoo writes. “As the Representative of California’s 18th Congressional District, I have an obligation to represent all my constituents, including separated children who may now be living there.”

The text of the letter can be found here.
