Democratic Majority for Israel’s CEO and President Mark Mellman issued the following statement today on behalf of Democratic Majority for Israel:

“The horrifying conditions the Trump Administration has inflicted on children and migrant families at the southern border are a stain on America’s values and character. Multiple reports have revealed the shocking and dangerous circumstances migrants face in custody – severe overcrowding, standing-room-only cells, children who are unfed and lack access to showers and basic items like soap and toothpaste. Democratic Majority for Israel supports Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s urgent calls to enact basic protections for migrants in custody. Her proposals prioritize the health, safety and well-being of migrant children and families. The Trump Administration must immediately adopt the Speaker’s recommendations and alleviate this suffering.”
