Oregon Attorney General Rosenblum today encouraged Oregonians who believe they may have family impacted by the Trump administration’s decision to separate families at the border, or know of children who have been separated and may have been placed in Oregon, to contact the Oregon Attorney General’s office.
“Right now, we have very limited information about who is impacted by the Trump administration’s cruel decision to separate children from their families once they cross the border into the U.S. We do not know where these children are going, and we do not know the full extent of who is being impacted,” said Attorney General Rosenblum. “If you believe your children, grandchildren or other family members have been separated, we want to hear from you. Or, if you know of any children who have been separated from their families and are coming to Oregon, we want to hear from you. The more accurate information we have, the better we are able to assess our legal options,” said Attorney General Rosenblum.
According to recent media stories, more than 123 individuals who are seeking asylum are being held in a federal prison in Sheridan, Oregon.
