Obama to Push for Immigration Money

Created: 07/08/2014 7:46 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says President Obama has no plans to visit the U.S.-Mexico border when he travels to Texas this week.
Today, Obama plans to ask Congress for more than $2 billion to deal with the crisis of unaccompanied migrant kids entering the U.S. illegally.
In prepared remarks for the Senate floor, Texas Republican John Cornyn says, "President Obama needs a wakeup call - and visiting the border and seeing firsthand the severity of this ongoing crisis is that wakeup call."
