U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul went to the border with Speaker Paul Ryan. The House Homeland Security Chairman now joins Good Day to talk about border security, the wall and the crisis in Syria.
"Well, I think Assad made a gross miscalculation. I think when you cross this red line, killing civilians in the hospital, the President was not going to let that go unanswered. The previous administration, lines were crossed and there was no consequence to that. I think you're seeing a different presidency. I think as long as Assad is in power in Syria, we will continue to have this problem and he's demonstrated that to resolve this crisis, which has caused the formation of ISIS and all these refugees. Assad has to go," McCaul said.
The U.N. Security Council called an emergency meeting to discuss the developments in Syria. Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, said the U.S. has insisted that meeting be held in the open that way any country that chooses to defend the Syrian regime will have to do so in full public view.
