President Trump has prioritized the crisis at the border as the central issue of concern in Washington. In the midst of a high stakes legislative battle, he turned to a small group of conservative leaders this week. Heritage President Kay Coles James was there to encourage him to stay the course and point to true north. The Heritage Foundation’s message has been consistent throughout this process: Secure the border. Open the government.
