No Tolerance For No Tolerance

President Trump's crackdown at the border is leaving Republicans in Congress scrambling to find a fix.

 

President Trump walked of out a meeting with House Republicans on the hill, and was quickly met with hecklers, including some Democratic members of Congress. Such is the climate now in Washington with both sides digging in over the administration’s no tolerance policy at the border which calls for prosecuting all adults crossing illegally, which, in turn requires that children be held separately. Republicans, though, are trying to find a legislative fix to allow the families to stay together through that process. Democrats, though, are in no mood to talk, saying the President should just order an end to the new policy. The President says he supports a legislative fix that would allow families to stay together.
