Congressional Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi responded to President Donald Trump’s primetime address on border wall funding and illegal immigration.

Pelosi said women and children at the border are a “humanitarian challenge,” countering the president’s statement that illegal immigration is causing a humanitarian “crisis.” Schumer said that both Democrats and the president want stronger border security, but he added that they sharply disagree with the most effective way to do it.

Democrats are calling to separate the shutdown from arguments over border security and reopen the government as soon as possible. Link in our bio to watch Pelosi and Schumer’s televised response, along with the transcript and our reporter’s fact check article on the president’s address.
