Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) is trying to overcome President Donald Trump's "crisis" as a "myth" and calls his ancient wall-bound strategy. Hurd has a pretty good idea of what. Its area includes 620 miles from the US-Mexico border.
Hurd characterizes Trump's wall as a "solution to the 21st century problem in the 21st century" in an interview for Rolling Stone, published Friday. Building a wall from sea to brilliant sea is the most expensive and most ineffective way of border security, "said Hurd. The congressman believes that while barriers are useful in urban areas, walls are useless in remote areas where border patrol agents require hours or even days to respond to an offense.
The congressman is already speaking on the wall, but now he has a new role in the Home Budget Committee, where he can exercise some significant additional potential, and he was eager to explain all the problems he has with the wall in this interview. New Mexico and California are opposed to the wall, but Hurd is the only Republican. (Only two Senators in all of these states ̵
Hurd pointed out that the situation could not be such, too dangerous for Trump to exclude the government and stop paying agents to border patrols.
He admitted that while there is a "crisis" in the amount of smuggling drugs in the country, Texas border towns are among the safest in the country. Something that is not often discussed by Trump is the inevitable contradiction that would arise if the government confiscated property under a domain to build a wall. According to Hurd 1000, property owners in his area will be affected.
"There is something in Texas that cares about the rights of private property," Hurd said.
Hurd believes border surveillance uses radars and cameras, and a careful study of what is being done and what works is a far more rational approach to be taken.
"It's not rocket science," Hurd says. – We can solve this problem. We need to look at the right indicators. The indicator is: do we see a drop in drugs and illegal immigration coming to this country? That's what we need to focus on, instead of how many miles a wall is. "
