LOUISVILLE — U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell side-stepped a question from Pure Politics Monday morning on the dozens of migrants now at the U.S. Mexico border.

The Central American migrants traveled en masse to the United States where they are pleading for asylum.

“We’ve got Mexico to work with us on stopping a lot of what’s pouring in, but we have the worst laws anywhere in the world,” President Trump said in response to the so-called migrant caravan.

National media outlets are reporting the migrants are vowing to remain outside of an immigration processing center near San Diego, California until every single person in the group is admitted into the United States.

Speaking in Louisville at an opioid press conference, on Monday, McConnell ducked a question on the stand-off when asked by Pure Politics about the situation.
