nearvideo Conway: the Congress and the courts have provided us with the border crisis

Kelly Anne Conway, a senior Advisor to the President, Trump told Fox News on Monday that the lawyers in the White house are creating the exploration of the legal implications to declaring a national emergency, the border wall, and placed the blame squarely on the Congress and the courts for the crisis on the Southern border.

In a wide-ranging interview on “The Ingraham angle,” Conway, the President said, “to deal” with a national emergency Declaration to the Congress, and the budget stalemate in Washington. Trump wants the US $5.6 billion-Fund of the wall.

Declare a national emergency legal challenges, and trump would pull out of the — who said that the legislator, would he be willing to keep the government closed, the said for months or even years, he would like to continue negotiations for now.

“There are probably some people who want him to declare (Trump) (the emergency), so that Congress may again fail to do their job,” she said. “The Congress and the courts have failed to do their job. You have given us the crisis.”

Conway defended the use of the word “crisis” to describe the situation on the border, and talked about illegal drugs in the United States from Mexico.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Senate Democrats Chuck Schumer called on them to give the networks to respond to the Democrats a chance.

“Now that the TV stations have decided to air the President’s speech, which, if his past statements are signs of malice and misinformation, the Democrats must immediately be given the same air time,” they wrote in a joint statement, released on Monday evening.
