Washington, DC - Remarks by President Trump on the National Security and Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border:

Washington, DC - As we look to the future of agriculture, manufacturing, small business, education, and healthcare, we see a common thread: every advance requires robust Internet connectivity. As President Donald J. Trump said during his State of the Union address, he is eager “to deliver new and important infrastructure investment, including investments in the cutting-edge industries of the future.” Those industries will rely heavily on widespread, secure, and reliable connectivity.

Washington, DC - The current situation at the southern border presents a border security and humanitarian crisis that threatens core national security interests and constitutes a national emergency.  The southern border is a major entry point for criminals, gang members, and illicit narcotics.  The problem of large-scale unlawful migration through the southern border is long-standing, and despite the executive branch’s exercise of existing statutory authorities, the situation has worsened in certain respects in recent years.  In particular, recent years have seen sharp increases in the number of family units entering and seeking entry to the United States and an inability to provide detention space for many of these aliens while their removal proceedings are pending.  If not detained, such aliens are often released into the country and are often difficult to remove from the United States because they fail to appear for hearings, do not comply with orders of removal, or are otherwise difficult to locate.

Washington, DC - "I will never waver from my sacred duty to defend this Nation and its people. We will get the job done." ~ President Donald J. Trump
