Freshman U.S. house representative Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) calls for a massive immigration overhaul.
On Sunday, Crenshaw said a greater emphasis needs to be put on closing loopholes in the immigration system, particularly the country’s detention policy, and noted that illegal immigrants have begun using children to dodge detention.
Crenshaw claims a solution would be to keep families together in while in the custody of U.S. authorities, and process their cases quickly so they can be deported.
He also said the country needs to update and expand its detention facilities and hire more immigration judges to implement this plan.
