SCHUMER: “Thank you, Speaker Pelosi. My fellow Americans, we address you tonight for one reason only. The President of the United States, having failed for Mexico to pay for his ineffective, unnecessary border wall... (...) But we also need to set the record straight. The American people need to know that because of our efforts in Congress, our border is far more secure today than it was when we began debating comprehensive reform in 2005. Between 2005 and 2009, a vast amount of progress has been made on our borders and ports of entry. The progress includes 9000 new Border Patrol field agents in the last four years, construction of a 630 miles of border fence that create a significant barrier to illegal immigration on our southern land border."
