Today @realDonaldTrump sent a letter to congress along with a slideshow presentation by Sec. Nielson. This presentation was to be given during the meeting on the 2nd, but cryin Chuck kept interrupting it- so POTUS has given it to everyone in congress.…
2) Here are some key bullet points from that presentation.
* In fiscal year (FY) 2018, 17,000 adults at the border with existing criminal records were arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and border agents.
3) * In FY2017 and FY2018, ICE officers arrested approximately 235,000 aliens on various criminal charges or convictions within the interior of the United States—including roughly 100,000 for assault, 30,000 for sex crimes, and 4,000 for homicides.
4) * We are now averaging 60,000 illegal and inadmissible aliens a month on our Southern Border.
* Last month alone, more than 20,000 minors were smuggled into the United States.
* The immigration court backlog is nearly 800,000 cases.
5) * There has been a 2,000 percent increase in asylum claims over the last five years, with the largest growth coming from C.A.—while around 9 in10 claims from C.A. migrants are ultimately rejected by the immigration courts, the applicant has long since been released into the US
6) * In FY2017, roughly 135,000 illegal and inadmissible family units arrived from Central America. Of those, less than 2 percent have been successfully removed from the country due to a shortage of resources and glaring loopholes in our federal laws.
7) * So far in FY2019, we have seen a 280 percent increase in family units from FY2018.
* 300 Americans are killed every week from heroin—90 percent of which floods across our Southern Border.
8) * Illegal immigration is a humanitarian crisis: 1 in 3 migrant women is sexually assaulted on the journey northward to the U.S. border; 50 illegal migrants a day are referred for emergency medical care; and CBP rescues 4,300 people a year who are in danger and distress.
9) Illegal immigration is NOT progressive—by every measure, it is unfair, unjust, uncompassionate, and cruel. Many people are killed. It hurts both those who make the journey and so many communities bearing the cost in lives, safety, and dollars.
10) Absolutely critical to border security and national security is a wall that prevents entry in the first place. Members of both parties—including then Senators Obama, Clinton, current Senator Schumer, & many other members of the House and Senate—all voted for a hard, barrier.
11) Walls work. That’s why rich, powerful, and successful people build them around their homes. All Americans deserve the same protection. In Israel, it is 99 percent effective.
12) To protect the children from abuse, and stop this illegal flow, we must close these loopholes. This is an urgent humanitarian necessity. Children are terribly used by criminals and coyotes to gain access to our country—they are the biggest victims of all.
13) The most pressing legal changes are as follows:
* Terminate the Flores Settlement Agreement—which is preventing families from being held together through removal; and
14) * Amend the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), to allow for the safe and humane return of illegally-smuggled minors back to their families in their home countries.
15) Americans have endured decades of broken promises on illegal immigration. Now, is the time for both parties to rise above the partisan discord, to set aside political convenience, and to put the national interest first.
16) Now is the time—this is the moment—to finally secure the border and create the lawful and safe immigration system Americans, and those wanting to become Americans, deserve.
Donald J. Trump

26) Here is the Chuck/Nancy press conference after the meeting today in the WH. Commentary included.
27) Their presser lasted about 3 minutes. @realDonaldTrump in the Rose Garden lasted over an hour, with a great portion of that being Q&A.
