The incident came as the Trump administration faces an outpouring of criticism from Republicans and Democrats for its “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
The controversial immigration policy implemented earlier this year seeks prosecution for any adult crossing the border illegally. The measure has resulted in the separation of hundreds of migrant families.
All 49 members of the Democratic caucus, which includes independent Sens. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) and Angus King (Maine), also signed on to legislation Monday to prevent the separation of immigrant families along the border.
