Over a dozen Republicans in Congress are expressing skepticism about President Donald Trump’s plan to construct an “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall” along the 1,954-mile-long border between the United States and Mexico.
Some of the GOP lawmakers say they will vote against any legislation funding a wall unless its potentially steep cost is wholly offset by cuts in spending elsewhere, reports CNN.
Other Republicans in Congress say that the wall, if built, will fail to stem the tide of illegal immigration from Mexico as well as Central America.
Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker counts himself among the legislators concerned about how any wall would be funded.
“I don’t want to see any spending, additional spending on anything done that is not paid for,” Corker told CNN. “We have got a huge fiscal problem right now — $20.355 trillion in debt projected to add $9.7 trillion over the next 10 years.”Read the rest of the story HERE.
