  • JOHN BOOZMAN: Wants to stop family separations.
Seung Min Kim, a Washington Post Capitol Hill reporter, Tweets that 13 senators, including Sen. John Boozman of Arkansas, have written the Justice Department asking it to temporarily halt the zero-tolerance policy that has led to the separation of families at the border.

These 13, she writes, believe Trump can do this. The signers so far: Hatch, McCain, Roberts, Collins, Murkowski, Corker, Alexander, Boozman, Heller, Gardner, Lankford, Cassidy and Portman.

No, of course not Tom Cotton.
