Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer introduced a bill that aims to end the separation of migrant children from their families while improving living conditions in border detention facilities.

According to the New York Post, the measure has already amassed more than 20 Senate co-sponsors, all Democrats — including some running for president, however, without Republicans on board, it is destined to be Dead On Arrival.

The bill, called the “Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act,” was unveiled on Capitol Hill the morning of Thursday, July 11.

“It is not American to treat children like this,” Schumer said, calling for “nasty and vicious” people in the Trump administration — namely immigration hardliner Stephen Miller — to stop using migrant children as political pawns.

Besides legislating the end of child separation, the bill will bump up health and safety protection for detained kids, including getting them swift medical assessments. It will also require that Congress receive monthly reports on the number of children in custody.

No Corresponding House Bill Yet

One of the co-sponsors of the Bill was Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR). In June 2018, Merkley set off a national firestorm when he went to the border to personally investigate the administration’s child separation policy and was turned away from a children’s detention center in Brownsville, Texas.

While the Bill will go nowhere without Republican support in the Senate, though it doesn’t yet have companion legislation in the House when it does, it would likely pass there, a meaningless gesture, as in order to become law, a bill needs to be passed by both the House and Senate.

It does, however, have Hollywood support, as actress Alyssa Milano gave it a plug on Twitter Wednesday, calling it “HUGE NEWS.”

  1. They are illegals you stupid fuck,we have homeless everywhere,trash,graffiti and you want to bring in more people!You shyne hung by your balls!!!!

  2. When are we going to stop referring to Milano fr anything? She is a used up actress who has nothing better to do with her life than to keep her mouth running to keep her in the limelight. She is as bad as green as illiterate as AOC when it comes to politics. By the way where is she and her me too group when it comes to Shumer and Epstein the sexual predator? Can’t openher mouth there now can she? Funny how when it comes to shumer she keeps her mouth shut.

  3. SCHUMER DO YOU KNOW THE WORD ILLEGAL..IT IS ILLEGAL TO CROSS OVER AMERICAN BORDER, WHEN YOU DO YOU BECOME A CRIMINAL YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN, WHEN YOU AID AND ABETT THESE CRIMINALS HELPING THEM YOU BECOME A CRIMINAL ALSO

  4. Why don’t the demonRATS build homes for the illegal ALIENS below the border, using their own exhorbitant salaries, leave our taxes alone.

  5. Why doesn’t Schmuck Schumer and all of the dem’s who are signing onto Schmuck’s bill donate their paychecks to the save the immigrants fund so the “children” are no longer mistreated. I’ll tell you why, because they really don’t care and are only trying to make the R’s look bad. Ask Schmuck why the House did not pass the bill to transfer $4 billion to the border fund. Was it because they all have their hearts in their hands or asses.

  6. It seems the only legislation the Democrats are willing to consider is those that give illegal immigrants more and better services-nothing that might help the American citizens is on the table. These people come here from Mexico and Central America (the ones who aren’t from Pakistan or Syria) to take advantage of our largess, at the continuous urging of the Democrat Party. Then, these same Democrats file law suites to guarantee the scofflaws move more quickly into the heartland. Soon enough, the judges rule that these illegals are NOT entitled to be here and now the Democrats give the illegals advice on how to avoid being expelled, even though that’s exactly what the law calls for. So, Democrats work to get criminals here, then work to keep them here and it’s not because of compassion-it’s pure self interest (fodder for voter fraud).

  7. the little ILLEGAL bastards have no rights here… their sole purpose of being here is to inflate the welfare rolls until the system breaks, and all the sheep will have no choice but to depend on the whores of liberal fascist government… they are criminal invaders who must, and will be removed at all costs… entitlements are for AMERICAN CITIZENS, not freeloading wetbacks…

  8. Maybe Shumer can have all of the democrats and himself who are linked to Epstein, donate monies to save the immigrants fund. Either that or resign.
