Goodlatte backs Trump on border wall

During the same CNN interview in which he refused to criticize President Trump on his bizarre voter fraud claims, Congressman Goodlatte backed the president’s plan to build a wall along the Mexican border.

As a “deficit hawk” who regularly introduces a “balanced budget amendment” in Congress, Goodlatte should be wary of spending up to $25 billion on such a project at a time when more Mexicans are leaving the US than entering.

Or does Goodlatte buy Trump’s ridiculous promise that Mexico somehow will be made to pay for the wall?

Perhaps Goodlatte should have a chat with a fellow Republican congressman.

“Building a wall is the most expensive and least effective way to secure the border,” Rep. Will Hurd (R-Tex.) said in a statement late Wednesday.

“Each section of the border faces unique geographical, cultural, and technological challenges that would be best addressed with a flexible, sector-by-sector approach that empowers the agents on the ground with the resources they need.”

    It appears to me that our Representative Goodlatte is following Trumps agenda with no consideration for basic human rights nor cst to the taxpayer. In office too long!
