HARTFORD -

Sen. Richard Blumenthal is back in Connecticut after spending the weekend in McAllen, Texas to look at an ICE detention facility.

Blumenthal calls the poor conditions of the facility a "humanitarian crisis." He says he saw children with poor hygiene separated from their parents and calls for the “intolerable conditions” to come to a stop.

Blumenthal says that a comprehensive immigration reform is the "only possible solution to this crisis.”
