California Governor Gavin Newsom traveled to the US-Mexico border Thursday where he championed the “economic vibrancy” and “legal immigration” taking place on a daily basis; asserting there is absolutely no “national emergency.”
I’m at our border today where there is no “national emergency.”
San Ysidro is the busiest border crossing in the Western Hemisphere. It’s a region of economic vibrancy — of trade and commerce. Our state thrives because of the families who live on both sides of this border. pic.twitter.com/CRfXGpyZb6

“We’re right here at the Mexican border. We’re here at San Ysidro, one of the busiest crossings in the United States. I’m trying to highlight a different story as it relates to what’s going on here,” said Newsom.
“It is a very different story than the one you’re hearing out of Washington, DC.,” he added.
