Trump wall: President addresses nation on border 'crisis'

Fox News Anchor Says Trump's Claims on Immigrants and Drugs Are Wrong in On-air Fact Check WATCH: Democrats Deliver Response to Trump's Prime Time Address
Patty Aguilar | 09 January, 2019, 17:35

Trump announced Monday that he will speak to the nation Tuesday night about illegal immigration and border security as the USA enters day 18 of a partial government shutdown in a fight over funding a border wall.

Trump used emotional language, referring to Americans who were killed by people in the country illegally, saying: "I've met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration".

The president says among those hit hardest by illegal immigration are African-Americans and Hispanics, though he did not provide any evidence to back that up. There is not a wall around Obama's Washington home.

Mr Trump insisted on funding for his long-promised US-Mexico border wall.

So, Trump's Twitter feed and a photo op as he signs anti-human trafficking legislation at the White House Wednesday could make compelling viewing - especially if the President is in a sour mood over morning television coverage of his big speech.

Pelosi of California said Trump is rejecting House-passed legislation reopening shuttered government agencies to fulfill his campaign promise to build a wall.

Trump spoke of a "humanitarian and security crisis" at the border and invoked cases such as that of a police officer "savagely murdered in cold blood by an illegal alien".

In a news briefing, Hoyer said Democratic leadership hasn't yet discussed a lawsuit if Trump delivers on the national crisis declaration he's considering - but said it's a possibility. Less than a week after Democrats seized control of the House, Pelosi and Schumer stood side-by-side at a lectern in a joint appearance that appeared created to emphasize their party's unity. "We don't govern by temper tantrum". "They can't watch every inch of the border, so that would help them take more control of the whole situation".

Meanwhile, people at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport say their minds are made up on the issue, and the speech will not sway them, either way. "I think it is a waste of money".

"It helps the border agents do their jobs better", said another man.
