"Based on the comments made by Senator Schumer, he must have seen how dangerous & bad for our Country the Border is. It is not a 'manufactured crisis,' as the Fake News Media & their Democrat partners tried to portray. He said he wants to meet. I will set up a meeting ASAP!"

Schumer is leading a group of about a dozen Senate Democrats on a visit to the border to see detention facilities. 

Several House Democrats recently went on a tour of facilities and came back sharing details of inhumane and unsanitary conditions.
