Norcross to Discuss his Visit with Migrant Children in South Jersey
The Center for Family Services in South Jersey Housed Several Youths Separated from their Families because of Trump Administration ‘Zero-Tolerance Policy’
Norcross was Barred from Immediately Visiting Separated Children in South Jersey
CHERRY HILL, NJ – On Monday, July 9 at 4:00 p.m., shortly after he visits a Center for Family Services site in South Jersey, Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) will describe his time spent at the location where separated youths were taken locally after the Trump Administration enforced a ‘zero-tolerance policy.’ The un-American policy resulted in immigrant children being inhumanely detained and then sent around the country to various facilities miles and miles away from their parents.
Two weeks ago, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) disallowed Norcross and other Members of Congress from immediately visiting separated children, and while Norcross protested the HHS policy and introduced federal legislation to change it, he also filled out paperwork to visit in two-weeks’ time. The Center for Family Services, with administrative offices in Camden, has been working closely with the Congressman since his office first reached out and has a superb reputation in the community.
