Twenty-two state attorneys general signed a letter which demands the Trump administration end this policy.
Ohio State attorney Mike DeWine was not one of them.
DeWine has not issued any Tweets, Facebook posts, or information on his website regarding the topic of illegal immigrant families crossing the border.
However, Governor John Kasich has.
“Can you imagine being ripped away from your family? That’s no solution. That’s not America,” he told MSNBC.

Senator Rob Portman also spoke out on Twitter.
“The admin should change course immediately and keep families together while their cases are expedited,” he wrote.
The admin should change course immediately and keep families together while their cases are expedited. If they don’t, Congress should act quickly on a legislative solution and I’m working with my colleagues to do so. https://t.co/tvbLj0UsgL

Back in April Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that undocumented immigrants, including those seeing asylum, would be prosecuted for illegally crossing the border.
Under the policy, adults who attempt to illegally cross the border are taken to federal prisons rather than immigrant detention centers.
Children are treated as “unaccompanied minors” and placed into the care of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, reports The Hill.
