"Over the years thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we don't act right now. This is a humanitarian crisis, a crisis of the heart and soul." -

"All Americans are hurt by uncontrolled, illegal migration," says @POTUS, noting the especially the drugs smuggled in that are killing Americans and violent crimes committed by those who have entered the US illegally. "This is a crisis of the heart, a crisis of the soul."

POTUS from Oval Office:  Sen Schumer and other Dems have supported barrier at border in the past.  Positions only changed after I was elected.

Kind of a “meh” all the way around.  He called on the people to call congress, but I think that point should’ve been hammered more.

Didn’t seem to be anything there requiring a natl address

Thanks for this thread, I thought I could sense a subtle "Trump-formation" in your posts.  (Snicker)

He's specifically blaming the DEMS and Schumer ... he should have had pictures, stats, etc., to substantiate his claims ... he needed to shock the hell out of people rather than just stating his case. 

Secondly....anyone?  Did the President's eye look nearly shut??  He also seemed like he had a hard time breathing?  He seems ill???

Schumer is speaking ... calling out Trump as unnecessarily shutting down the border and hurting workers.  Nancy looks like she's comotose.

This will be a continued impass --- it will be up to the people to rise up and stand their ground.  DEMS are well organized ... I'm waiting for riots quite frankly.

Illegal immigration was front and center, right before the midterms. Active duty personnel were very publicly sent to head off caravans. Despite that, the House was still lost. For two years, it wasn’t seriously introduced in Congress. Only at the 11th hour was any action taken. It obviously wasn’t a major issue with representatives and voters.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Schumer is suggesting gov't open while issue debated ... it is being reported that Murkowski (R-AK) is agreeing.

Damn it!  ALL the GOP needs to stand behind this President!!!!

If they don't do that they may as well shutter the GOP headquarters in Washington and go home!

I couldn't agree more.  IF the GOP can't stand united behind this president on this issue then they are WORTHLESS!
