Ben Ray Lujan: ‘This Is Not the National Security Crisis’ on the Border; It’s a ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ Created By Trump

‘The president was suggesting that there was an immediate national security crisis’

RUSH EXCERPT:

LUJAN: “Look, this is not the national security crisis that the president continues to describe. There is a humanitarian crisis, but it’s created by President Donald Trump. When you go back to the threats even during the midterms, the president was suggesting that there was an immediate national security crisis and he sent troops to the border just to try to distract the American people with the gains that we were going to see in the midterms. Then we went into a shutdown and the president took the same deal after 35 days of a shutdown that he couldn’t take on day one to prevent that government shutdown.”
