Republicans on a Utah Senate committee abruptly ended debate on Friday on a resolution opposing President Trump’s now-discontinued policy of separating children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Dozens of young children were reunited with their parents yesterday after being separated at the border under the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy. The government is still working to reunite many more children with their parents, some of whom are being held at a detention center in Aurora, Colorado.
