Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blasted Republicans on Monday while suggesting Congress may fail to pass the White House’s emergency funding request to address the influx of child migrants at the Southern border.
“We need to get resources to our border patrol agents and others who are caring for these children in central America. We need judges to hear these kids’ cases and decide whether they need protection or need to be sent back home,” Reid said. “The world is watching how this great democracy of ours responds to this crisis.”
