‘Security crisis’: Trump calls on Dems to end shutdown, protect border

President Trump called on Congress Tuesday night to fund his proposal for stronger border security and to end the government shutdown, saying there is a “growing humanitarian and security crisis” at the southern border.

“This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice,” Mr. Trump told the nation in a prime-time address, citing high-profile crimes committed by illegal immigrants. “How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?”

In his first Oval Office address, Mr. Trump stopped short of declaring a national emergency that would allow him to order the military to build a barrier on the border, a move that would also draw legal challenges. He instead called on Democrats to fund his proposals, including $5.7 billion for a wall or steel barrier.

“This barrier is absolutely critical to border security,” he said. “It’s also what our professionals at the border want and need. This is just common sense.”
