A man outraged by the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy that led to the separation of illegal immigrant families is under arrest for allegedly threatening Rep. Brian Mast's, R-Fla., three young children.

According to a federal complaint posted by the Treasure Coast Newspapers, Laurence Key of Stuart, Florida, called the lawmaker's office in Washington on June 18 and allegedly said, "I'm going to find the congressman's kids and kill them. If you are going to separate kids at the border, I'm going to kill his kids."

Mast has a daughter and two sons who are under the age of 8.

The federal complaint stated Key previously has called the lawmaker's office 478 times, and he also contacted the offices of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., last week.

Key denied threatening to kill the Mast children, but admitted he said Mast should be separated from them if he supported the Trump administration policy, the TC Palm reported.

Facing a federal charge of "communication of a threat to kidnap or injure a person," Key is scheduled for arraignment July 2 in Fort Pierce, Florida, the outlet reported.
