House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) recently appeared on Fox News where he claimed that while he does not see a border wall as an issue of morality, he is questioning if it is the best way to spend money.
Hoyer stated, “I don’t think this is an issue of morality, it’s an issue of does it work? And Senator Cornyn (R-TX), Senator Graham (R-SC), other members of the United States Senate, have put in question whether a wall works, whether that is the best way to secure the border. Now, is — are some restraints? We’ve supported substantial restraints. We’ve supported fencing. We’ve supported other technologies. So, my own view is that this is not an issue of morality.”
When discussing matters of racism, Hoyer stated, “I don’t think that’s the way we ought to look at it.”
