Cuban American Republicans in South Florida expressed their outrage at the Trump administration's policy of splitting up families at the border and are actively pursuing a legislative fix.

Miami Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart and Carlos Curbelo are at the fore of negotiations on compromise immigration legislation in the House that "puts an end to this cruel practice," Diaz-Balart tweeted Monday.

"It is totally unacceptable, for any reason, to purposely separate minor children from their parents," Diaz-Balart tweeted.

Sen. Marco Rubio is also actively touting a change in laws.

It was similar to Rubio's Monday post:

Curbelo called the Trump administration's policy a "tragedy," but issued a reminder that this isn't the first time.

Retiring Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen issued a statement against President Donald Trump's policy earlier this year.

"Separating families at the border is a cruel policy that needlessly subjects both parents and children to emotional and psychological harm," Ros-Lehtinen said. "President Trump has chosen to implement this policy and he can put an end to it but he chooses not to do so and instead blames others."
