West Wing Reads Give the Border Patrol a Break “A new report from the U.S. Border Patrol proves that only the willfully ignorant can doubt that we’re dealing with an immigration crisis,” Dr. Ed Feulner writes in The Washington Times. “Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 66,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexican border in February. That’s the highest total for a single month in almost a decade.” “The entire system right now is at full capacity,” agent Manuel Padilla said. “Actually, it’s overwhelmed.” Click here to read more. “On Thursday, the Senate will take up the House resolution to disapprove of the president’s emergency declaration. The question is simple: Do you believe, as President Trump does, that we have a crisis on the southern border that must be addressed to protect American families?” Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) writes in The Washington Post. “The refusal of Democrats to give our Border Patrol agents and our immigration enforcement officials the resources they need to secure the border puts all Americans at risk. They left the president with no choice but to declare a national emergency, and he is on sound legal footing.” “In May 2016, a group of national health experts issued an urgent plea in a private letter to high-level officials in the Obama administration,” Scott Higham, Sari Horwitz, and Katie Zezima report for The Washington Post. “Thousands of people were dying from overdoses of fentanyl — the deadliest drug to ever hit U.S. streets.” Yet “despite mounting deaths and warnings, the Obama administration did not take extraordinary measures to confront an extraordinary crisis, experts say.” “National Guard troops helped with the arrest of 23,034 illegal immigrants and the seizure of more than 35,000 pounds of drugs in the roughly six months they were deployed to the border in fiscal 2018, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection,” Anna Giaritelli reports in the Washington Examiner. Former Vice President Joe Biden “criticized President Donald Trump’s proposed 2020 budget for doing what his own administration asked for in their time at the White House. Biden decried the budget, saying, ‘Did you see the budget that was just introduced?’” Saagar Enjeti writes in The Daily Caller. “The proposed reductions to Medicare exactly mirror the same mechanism proposed by the Obama administration.” Privacy Policy | Contact the White House | Unsubscribe The White House · 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW · Washington, DC 20500 · USA · 202-456-1111
