Eyewitness News Laura Kirtley speaks with Indiana Senator Dan Coats on the pressure put on Russia after the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crash and the ongoing immigration crisis.

Senator Coats says he believes the U.S. has sent a clear message to Russian President Vladimir Putin that the situation in Ukraine is intolerable and there there will be a price to be paid.

He compared the plane crash with the Soviets shooting down the Korean flight in 1983 and says it exposes Putin for his "dictatorial leadership" of Russia.

On the immigration crisis, Senator Coats stresses the need to secure the southwest border and enforce laws, which he believes the messages has been very loose on that.
