Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) are unveiling a bill Wednesday that seeks to block Immigration and Customs Enforcement from using information collected by Health and Human Services to arrest family members or others who come forward to care for unaccompanied migrant children.

Critics worry that the arrests have deterred potential sponsors from coming forward to take custody of these children, which has contributed to the record number of migrant minors in HHS centers and tent cities.

Driving the news: During a press briefing on Thursday, Trump did not question the veracity of a Newsweek op-ed that inaccurately claimed Harris may be ineligible for the office due to her parents' naturalization status at the time of her birth. Harris is an American citizen and was born in Oakland, Calif.
