Border Patrol Takes Medicine from Kids- Trump wants more visas; for the Irish

Border Patrol takes medicine from kids.

Trump favors more visas- for the Irish. 
TRUMP TALKS IRISH VISAS: Trump fielded a question about increasing Irish visas during a press conference Wednesday with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in Shannon. 
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan quietly pushed legislation late last year that would have added thousands of E-3 visas (currently available only to Australians) for Irish nationals. A related bill cleared the House with an uncontested voice vote, but died in the Senate.
Trump said during the press event with Varadkar that he backs extending E-3s to the Irish and thinks it is "going to be successful," according to a pool report. The president suggest a single senator derailed the vote in the Senate, but he didn't name the lawmaker. "He's a terrific person," Trump said of the mystery senator. "He doesn't mean to do any harm — that, I can tell you. He was telling me he loves Ireland, actually. So I think we're going to be in good shape."
