The President says women and children are being ruthlessly exploited at the U.S.-Mexican border. Speaking yesterday in New Orleans, President Trump again called the border situation a humanitarian and security crisis. He repeated a pledge to build a massive border wall. The stalemate over wall funding between the President and Democrat lawmakers is prompting an ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government. The shutdown is in its fourth week. Democrats have accused Trump of manufacturing a crisis to get money for the wall. Republicans blame the Democrats' intransigence on the border wall funding issue for the shutdown.
