McClintock: The Border Crisis
Local Congressman Tom McClintock outlined his ideas for short and long-term solutions in response to what is happening at the southern border of the United States on both the US House Floor and on mymotherlode.com.
McClintock was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Here are the Congressman’s words:
“Mr. Speaker, Wherever I go, people express a growing anger over the illegal immigration that is overwhelming our southern border. People ask me:
• “How can we talk about securing the border in the Ukraine or Iraq while our own border is wide open?”
• “How can we talk about supporting the population of Central America when we’re $18 trillion in debt?”
• “How can we talk about giving jobs to millions of illegal immigrants when fewer Americans are working today than when the so-called recovery began?”
• “If the federal government can’t defend our own border, what good is it?””

The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 AM.
