El Centro, California - Today, Congressman Juan Vargas (CA-51) issued the following statement after spending the early afternoon visiting recently transferred migrant children and families at the El Centro Customs and Border Protection Station.
“Unlike the acts that much of the American public saw yesterday in Murrieta, today children and families being transferred to the El Centro Customs and Border Protection Station experienced a different reception. Federal officers were allowed to do their jobs in a peaceful and appropriate manner, and I applaud them for their professionalism and compassion. I met and prayed with these young children and their families and assured them that the United States would treat them fairly and with dignity.”
