(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. (D.-N.J.) stood on the House floor on June 20 and warned the nation of an “evil plot by the Trump administration.”

“There are babies being ripped away from their parents at the southern border in the name of the American people,” said Mr. Payne. “Make no mistake, this is part of an evil plot by the Trump administration, and it has to stop.”

“The American people demand an end to this evil, to this new GOP nonprofit, ‘Cage the Children,’ he concluded.

Here is the full transcript of Payne’s remarks:

Rep. Donald Payne, Jr.: "Mr. Speaker, there are babies being ripped away from their parents at the southern border in the name of the American people. Make no mistake, this is part of an evil plot by the Trump administration, and it has to stop.

"What I want to know is how the Trump administration is keeping track of these children. My triplets didn't carry identification around when they were little babies. That was my wife's and my job, to be able to identify them and speak for them. We were with our kids, and we could identify them.

"If these babies don't have identification, how will they be reunited with their parents? How will they be reunited with their families?

"The American people demand answers, Mr. Speaker. The American people demand an end to this evil, to this new GOP nonprofit, 'Cage the Children.'"
