President Trump is urging Republicans and Democrats to come together to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
In a tweet Friday, he called for a bipartisan effort to push a border security package, which would include legislation to fund the border wall.
The president also said “after 40 years of talks, it’s finally time for action to fix the border once and for all.”
His comments come after he threatened to shutdown the southwest border, if Mexico doesn’t do its part to stop the migrants from illegally crossing into the U.S.
Republicans and Democrats MUST come together, finally, with a major Border Security package, which will include funding for the Wall. After 40 years of talk, it is finally time for action. Fix the Border, for once and for all, NOW!
