DALLAS (AP) - President Barack Obama has met with officials and religious leaders in Dallas to discuss the humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border.

But Obama rejected criticism that he should make a personal tour of the border to see the flood of young Central Americans.

He said the situation is a problem, "not theater." Obama called on lawmakers, including the Texas delegation, to approve his $3.7 billion request for emergency spending.
