Rep. Sensenbrenner on #SOTU: “It’s imperative that Congress provide the much needed resources to secure our borders, cut off the flow of drugs and illegal immigration, and ensure the safety of the American people. 1/
Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan and Rep. Gwen Moore weren't buying the president's plea for border wall funding.
As expected, Trump is using #SOTU to spread lies & instill fear in the hearts of the American public by painting immigrants & asylum seekers as criminals, murders & drug dealers. This is a manufactured crisis designed to scare us into submission & garner support for his wall.

President Trump could do something about mass shootings like the one at the Tree of Life Synagogue:
• Reinstate the assault weapons ban
• Ban high capacity magazines
• Close loopholes in the background check system
However, he refuses to act. #SOTU2EndGunViolence #SOTU
