NOELLE NIKPOUR (FORMER REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE): Well, as we all can recognize that there is a crisis. There's a crisis at the border. We don't have the manpower, we don't have the facilities to house. We all know that there is a crisis. Not only to mention -- like, we have a measles outbreak that's going on. I mean, we don't even know as far as like a health concern what's going on. So there's a whole lot that we have to cover. What the president's going to do is address the crisis. The Democrats, to my knowledge, have not really had anything out. They're more concerned with the green deal and other things like that, than taking care of what we know as a crisis.
