U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, released the following statement after President Trump signed an Executive Order ending the family separation practice:

“Thank goodness this ugly practice is ending. As it should. Now we must re-double our efforts to fix a broken immigration system.”

On Monday, Upton publicly called for an end to “ugly and inhumane” family separations at the U.S./Mexico border and earlier today he urged the president to “stop the madness.”
