MSNBC has noticed the border crisis. Will Congressional Democrats?

President Donald J. Trump was among the first to call attention to the growing crisis on America’s southern border. Most important, he was also the first to take action, issuing a national emergency in February that put more resources behind the hardworking law enforcement officers who safeguard our immigration system.

Critics called that emergency a “manufactured” crisis. That’s a convenient argument, because if they pretend a problem doesn’t exist, they don’t have to try to solve it.

But even MSNBC—not exactly most Americans’ idea of a hard-right news outlet—is challenging that narrative. Today, the cable network highlighted the surge of alien families overwhelming communities near our border, speaking with a San Diego shelter that has seen its resources overstretched by the recent influx.

“American communities are struggling to deal with the surging numbers of families who are crossing into the United States,” MSNBC’s Craig Melvin reported. “ICE tells us that their transportation is completely overwhelmed. CBP used the word ‘strained.’ That is the situation of many of these cities,” reporter Mariana Atencio added.

“When you look at the numbers, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop any time soon.”

That situation is a far cry from how Congressional Democrats described the problem at our southern border just a few weeks ago. The full extent of the crisis remains underreported, but it’s encouraging to see mainstream media attention finally being given to the communities most affected by the recent illegal immigration surge.

Congress has stayed on the sidelines for far too long. Voters across the political spectrum agree that America needs a safe, lawful, and fair immigration system. How much worse does the problem need to get before Washington finally delivers?

President Trump is taking action to reduce visa overstays and uphold our laws.

Kids get a behind-the-scenes look at the White House

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have hosted some very special guests at the White House this week. It started on Monday, when the First Family welcomed children for the 141st White House Easter Egg Roll. More than 30,000 people celebrated with the President and First Lady on the South Lawn.
The fun continued today, when hundreds of children got a behind-the-scenes look at the White House during the annual “Bring Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” Children of both White House staffers and the press corps toured the grounds and participated in a special kid-friendly briefing with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders—including a drop-in visit from Vice President Mike Pence.

President Trump concluded the festivities by greeting children on the South Lawn.
