TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Congressman Dennis Ross joined AM Tampa Bay to talk about foreign aid to the Middle East, but also mentioned others.

Ross says he recently co-sponsored a bill that deals with unaccompanied minors coming into the U.S. from Mexico.

"We give them way to much aid for us to have the problems that we have on our borders and with the influx of immigrants and also with regards to this marine that's over there. Yes, I agree. This is how we get their attention. This is how we get the attention of Palestine to come to the table and sit down and negotiate a peaceful resolution to the conflict that's going on right now," Ross said.
