Democrats are breaking rank with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and showing signs of cracking on the border wall.
Some Democrats are now outright contradicting Pelosi’s claim that a border wall would be “ineffective.”
CNN reported that House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi is willing to give “nothing for the wall,” she said in an interview clip that was tweeted on Wednesday — the 12th day of the government shutdown and the eve of the Democratic-majority 116th Congress’ swearing in.
Congressional Democrats are ditching House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s ardent opposition to any barrier or wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, as the partial government shutdown continues and President Donald Trump takes his case directly to the border itself.
“If we have a partial wall, if we have fencing, if we have technology used to keep our border safe, all of that is fine,” Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), the chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), said on CNN.
