‘It’s A Myth’: TX GOP Lawmaker Takes Trump Down, Debunks His Lies About ‘Border Crisis’

Donald Trump continues to do what he knows best and lie to the public. But his lies aren’t going unnoticed. During an interview with Rolling Stone, Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) debunked Trump’s claims that the country is in desperate need for a border wall.

Hurd was asked by Rolling Stone reporter Andy Kroll if he believed a border wall was necessary and if a government shutdown was needed to get the wall.

Hurd then called the government shutdown a “waste” as the wall isn’t the best way to have border security.

“In some places, a physical barrier is a helpful tool,” he said. “But you can’t use the same tool over every single mile. Let’s be efficient. What I always say is building a wall from sea to shining sea is the most expensive and least effective way to do border security.”

“It is a myth,” Hurd said of the need for the wall. “That’s why we’ll continue to talk about how we solve this problem, operate within the Secure Fence Act, double down on our ports of entry, because that’s where most of the illegal drugs come in, that’s where most people are surrendering. We’ll use technology and address root causes in Mexico with a Marshall Plan for Central America. You do those things, put that together, it’s a big package, but it’s also what is needed in order to make sure our country is safe.”
