Texas Democrat that represents the southern part of Texas near the border accused Nancy Pelosi of Lying to the American people…
When she said Democrats restricted funding for new border barriers to “see-through fencing” in the omnibus spending package.
Rep. Filemon Vela democrat of Texas on Wednesday questioned CBP commissioner Kevin McAleenan about the language in the bill where McAleenan said that the new 25 mile wall being built will not be “See-Through”
The language in the omnibus approves “$445,000,000 for 25 miles of primary pedestrian levee fencing along the southwest border in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.”
There’s another $445 million for the replacement of existing walls, which is separate from the $445 million for “brand new concrete levee walls,” Vela explained.
“When we were passing the omnibus she said that all we were doing was funding see-through fencing — it’s just not true,” he said.
“Basically Trump’s getting what he wants, at least for these 25 miles he’s getting a concrete wall,” Vela said, who is a staunch opponent of any funding for border barriers, even fencing. “It’s disingenuous for the Democratic leadership to say they’re against the wall when they actually supported this kind of funding for a concrete barrier.”
A Pelosi aide disputed that anyone was hiding the ball. Democratic leaders said all along that levee walls were funded. They said, “levee is a concrete barrier the same height as the current earthen barrier.”
