Kern County Congressman and house majority leader Kevin McCarthy shared his thoughts on the zero tolerance immigration policy. 

McCarthy talked about a number of bills Congress is working on to pass. He said the immigration issue is impacting both sides of the aisle. 

"“... I say ours because it's not a Republican or Democrat problem, it's an American problem. I want to be very clear, we do not support the separation of children and families being broken apart, " McCarthy said. 

The house is scheduled to vote on two bills to deal with immigration. 

Representatives will vote on the bills tomorrow.
