Senator Says He Doesn’t Like A Border Wall

Democratic Senator, Richard Blumenthal, just made the claim that while Democrats do support the notion of increased border security, they absolutely will not stand for the border wall that is currently been suggest because “[s]quandering billions of dollars on an ineffective solution to border security is really reprehensible.”

When co-host of CNN’s “New Day,”  Alisyn Camerota asked, “Are you going to have to give President Trump his funding for his border wall in order to get a deal?”

Blumenthal replied, “A border wall is a waste of money. Squandering billions of dollars on an ineffective solution to border security is really reprehensible. So, we are going to be supporting border security, surveillance, drones, more training for the agents who are there, and additional agents. There are ways we can strengthen the fencing that exists and maybe extend it. If the Mexicans are not going to pay for the border wall as Donald Trump promised, we won’t support it in the way that he has proposed.”
