It’s easy to fixate on the statistics at the southern border, as millions of migrants and gotaways cross every day. However, there are human lives behind these numbers — so how can we work to ensure the innocent ones are treated with respect? Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL) and Congresswoman Hillary Scholten (D-MI) discuss their bipartisan efforts to create the Dignity Act – which aims to improve security and processing systems at the border while also ensuring migrants who have been living and working in America for five years receive fair treatment from the government.
Later, they discuss how the border crisis has impacted both of their states in unique ways, and how they found themselves working across the aisle with one another on this issue.
