Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, of Texas, says President Obama should, "at some point," visit the border. The Houston Chronicle reports:
AUSTIN — Democratic gubernatorial nominee Wendy Davis said Thursday that President Obama should visit the country’s southern border to see for himself the flood of unaccompanied children arriving every day.
“I hope that at some point in time he will make time” to visit the border, Davis said. “It’s one thing to see the numbers, it’s another thing to see it.”
The Forth Worth state senator made the comment in response to questions at a news conference after a speech at the annual conference of the Association of Texas Professional Educators.
Obama, who is in Texas for two days of fundraising and a midday speech at the Paramount Theatre here, has drawn criticism from Republicans and a few Democrats for not including a border visit in his trip. The White House has said the president is interested in action, not “photo opps.”

Imagine a parallel universe in which the media coverage of legislators' recent efforts to pass gun control omitted any reference to last year's slaughter of 20 children and six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
