President Obama says his administration is doing everything in its power to crack down on child predators.
"We are going to do everything in our power as long as I'm in the White House and as long as I'm the father of two girls to make sure that we're providing the states the support that they need," Mr. Obama told America's Most Wanted Host John Walsh in an interview.
The President sat down for an interview with Walsh to mark the show's 1000th episode. The two discussed ways in which the administration is combating crime. Mr. Obama touted the $4 billion in Recovery Act funds that have been allocated for state and local law enforcement.
Walsh's show has helped capture more than 1100 fugitives and has reunited 43 missing children with their families. He has been fighting for victim protection legislation since 1981 when his son, Adam was abducted and murdered. In the interview the President assured Walsh that he'll work with Congress to fund the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, which was passed in 2006.
"We couldn't be prouder of what you've done," Mr. Obama told Walsh, "and I know Adam's looking down on us and saying, 'you know, my Dad has really done something incredible.'"
The interview will air in full on Saturday March 6 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
