OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR — News Release — Governor Ige’s statement on separation of families

Posted on Jun 20, 2018 in Latest News, Press Releases

STATEMENT BY GOVERNOR DAVID Y. IGE:

“Separating children from their parents and loved ones seeking asylum is morally indefensible and shameful. The people of Hawai‘i have always valued those who have the courage to seek a better life for themselves and their children. The Trump administration clearly does not share the same values.”
