The White House and President Trump have called out Congress claiming that the country of Mexico is doing more to secure the southern border than lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

The mounting frustration comes after President Trump secured a deal with Mexico where Mexico will increase immigration enforcement to stem the tide of illegal immigrants flooding our southern border.

According to Town Hall:

President Trump and White House officials are slamming Democrats as they continue their refusal to solve the ongoing crisis on the southern border. 

Over the weekend, Trump announced a deal with Mexico had been reached in order to hold off tariffs that were set to go into affect today.

 

...

During an interview with Fox and Friends Monday morning, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway argued Democrats are doing less than Mexican officials to take action.

"Mexico took the President's tariff threat very seriously and they're starting to take enforcement of their southern border seriously. This is important to both countries. We now have Mexico doing more than the Democrats who work behind me on Capitol Hill on securing our southern border," Conway said.

Lindsey Graham will have a hearing about possible legislation to fix the border crisis. It still remains unclear if Congress will vote to progress the legislation to Trump's desk.
