Border surge overwhelming, officials say

WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of children streaming from chaotic Central American nations to the U.S. border have overwhelmed the government's ability to respond, senior administration officials said Wednesday as President Barack Obama urged Congress to move swiftly to approve emergency spending request for the crisis.

Emerging from a highly anticipated meeting with Texas Gov. Rick Perry in Dallas, Obama said he was open to suggestions from Perry and others that he dispatch National Guard troops to the border, but warned such a solution would only work temporarily. He said Republicans appealing for him to embrace their ideas for addressing the crisis should grant his request so the government will have the resources to put those ideas into action.
