Blackburn Report: Senator Marsha Blackburn visits Border with Vice President Mike Pence

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – We continue to hear about the crisis at our southern border. As the situation becomes more and more dire, it is important that both sides of the aisle work together on solving this issue.

On Friday, the Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee saw firsthand the work being done to secure our border. We spoke with border patrol officers, toured the McAllen Border Patrol Station, and spoke with detained migrants.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Much of the technology needed to get to the lunar surface and return didn’t exist at the time of Kennedy’s famous 1962 speech. And much was unknown. As NASA’s Apollo missions were being planned, there was concern that the lunar module might sink right into the surface or become stuck in it.
