Many Americans support Trump’s plan for a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
But Democrats refuse to budge to secure our porous southern border.
Now Nancy Pelosi shared her “better” plan and it left folks scratching their heads.
“I’m not the wall’s biggest advocate in Congress,” Pelsoi told The Arizona Republic.
But, she claims, that doesn’t mean she’s not in favor of proposing “serious” border security measures.
Like what, you ask?
“Mowing the grass.”
You read that right.
To Nancy Pelosi, mowing the grass is “a more serious structure” than a 30-ft wall on the border.
Here’s the full money quote:
“But, again, let’s sit down and talk this through about what makes sense, not some commitment to a promise that we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it. That’s never going to happen.”
“Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do or mowing the grass so that people can’t be smuggled through the grass. That’s something — levies, technology, personnel.”
The Free Beacon provides some additional context:
Pelosi joined the Arizona Republic for an interview where she confessed she is not the “biggest advocate in Congress” for the construction of border wall, even if, in the words of the Republic‘s Ron Hansen, it could give “some insurance for the Dreamers.”
The debate over immigration reform is expected to continue as the next deadline, March 23, approaches to pass a spending bill and avoid a government shutdown. Pelosi has been a staunch opponent of increasing border security in the form of President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the southern border.
The Democratic leader said that while Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it was “never going to happen,” she saw opportunity to discuss other security measures. Pelosi, for instance, advocated for “mowing the grass so people can’t be smuggled through the grass” along the southern border.
