LINCOLN, Neb. – Republican U.S. Senate nominee Ben Sasse is calling on President Obama to go to Central America and make it clear the unaccompanied minors streaming north will not get amnesty.

Sasse released a campaign video on the border crisis, which he called a “horrible human tragedy.”

“President Obama, whether deliberately or not, has let this (amnesty) belief take hold. It is the reason that we have this crisis today,” Sasse said. “Let’s fix the problem. This is actually one of those places where your pen and your phone – actually, your megaphone – is needed. Use it. The American people are sick and tired of political gamesmanship. Go to Central America and stop the bleeding.”
