The congressman showed little sympathy for young migrants crossing the border. While he said that some may qualify to stay in the U.S., that most needed to be sent away as a "message of deterrence."

He called for immigration policy changes, including tweaking the 2008 anti-trafficking law to make it easier to quickly deport immigrant children from Central America.
