You already can’t put a wall everywhere simply for terrain reasons in some areas, as the Trump plan already recognizes. What this really comes down to is with the leaders not wanting a couple of hundred miles worth of wall in areas that desperately need it, even according to a lot of these Democrats.
Via Free Beacon:
Some Democratic lawmakers are beginning to crack on their opposition to the wall.
President Donald Trump and Congress remain at an impasse over funding for Trump’s proposed border wall along the southern border. The standoff has resulted in a partial government shutdown that is now in its 20th day. Trump gave an Oval Office address Tuesday night arguing that there is a crisis at the border and that a physical barrier is necessary in order to secure it.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and other Democrats have expressed opposition to any funding for a wall. Pelosi even went as far as calling a border wall “immoral.”
However, some cracks are beginning to form in Democratic opposition.
“Some fencing has uses. Some barriers are useful,” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D,. Ore.) said.
“If we have a partial wall, if we have fencing, if we have technology used to keep our border safe, all of that is fine,” Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.) said.
