Some context to the president’s comments from PBS NewsHour Digital Politics Editor Daniel Bush

This video is about President Donald Trump’s press conference at the White House on March 15, 2019. He remarks that the protection of the nation is his highest duty. He says that yesterday, Congress passed a dangerous resolution that, if signed into law, would put countless Americans in very grave danger. He adds that the Democrat-sponsored resolution would terminate vital border security operations by revoking the national emergency issued a month.

President Donald Trump declares that he will be signing and issuing a formal veto of that reckless resolution. He states that more than 76,000 illegal migrants arrived at their border last month. He says that there has been a nearly 2,000 percent increase in border-related asylum claims over the last decade. He says that their immigration system is stretched beyond the breaking point. He exclaims that they could make a deal on changing catch and release, changing the horrible asylum unfair laws, changing visa lottery, and chain migration, which all are inspired by Democrats who have to change.

Donald Trump remarks that the mass incursion of illegal aliens, deadly drugs, dangerous weapons, and criminal gang members across their borders has to end. He says that the national emergency he declared last month was authorized by Congress under the 1976 National Emergencies Act. He adds that there have not been too many that are a big emergency than they have right at their own border. Trump announces that he is vetoing this resolution.

President Trump mentions that Presidents have declared 59 national emergencies since 1976. He says that they often involved protecting foreign citizens in far-off lands, yet Congress has not terminated any of them. He states that the only emergency Congress voted to revoke was the one to protect their own country.

Trump signs the veto. He says that they are building a lot of wall right now and replacing it with 30-foot bollards and 18-foot wall. He ends by saying that they want border security, they want safety, they want no drugs, and they want no human trafficking.
