Nelson Calls On Trump Admin. To End Charge For Immigrants Speaking To Kids

Florida's U.S. Senator Bill Nelson is calling it a "new low".  

The Florida Democrat joined more than 140 other members of Congress in calling on the Trump administration to end a policy that currently charges detained migrant parents who have been separated from their children as much as eight dollars a minute to speak to their child by phone.  

Nelson and others sent a letter to the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement in which they called the administration's practice shameless and completely unjustified.  

They urged the head of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to immediately implement changes to allow the parents to speak to their kids for free.
