Crisis At Our Southern Border
For months, President Trump along with dozens of Republicans and government officials have been saying there is a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, much to the disbelief and denial of the Democrats. President Trump has already cut U.S. aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and has now threatened to close the Southern border due to the influx of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who have overwhelmed DHS and the U.S. Border Patrol. Sen. Marsha Blackburn appeared on Fox News this morning saying, "Until we close the Southern border, every town is a border town." Democrats desperately need to work with Republicans in Congress to secure the U.S.-Mexico border for the safety of the American people.
