Trump insists there's 'invasion' at Mexico border

With the government shutdown in its 21st day, just one day away from becoming the longest one in history, United States President Donald Trump insisted on Twitter that the "humanitarian crisis" at the border with Mexico is an "invasion," far worse than imagined by the general public and politicians in Washington.

"Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion! I have been there numerous times - The Democrats, Cryin’ Chuck and Nancy don’t know how bad and dangerous it is for our ENTIRE COUNTRY. The Steel Barrier, or Wall, should have been built by previous administrations long ago. They never got it done - I will. Without it, our Country cannot be safe. Criminals, Gangs, Human Traffickers, Drugs & so much other big trouble can easily pour in. It can be stopped cold!" the president tweeted.

Earlier this week, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi persisted in rejecting Trump's demand for $5.7 billion for building a wall or a barrier with Mexico, which made the president walk out of a meeting where they tried to find a solution that would reopen the government. Media reported that the White House is preparing legal justifications for a national emergency, where congressional approval for the wall would not be necessary.
