It may be a while before CNN invites House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer for an interview. It goes against their narrative when a powerful Democrat admits “physical barriers are part of the solution,” which he did while being questioned by Neil Cavuto on Fox News today.
The big pushes from Democrats for the last two months have evolved. First, the wall was racist. When that didn’t play well, they said it was too expensive. That opened a can of worms, considering how much Democrats love to spend regardless of cost to taxpayers. They’ve gone with the wall being “immoral,” and that’s stuck around so far, but they’ve added the biggest lie of them all so far. They say it doesn’t work.
They know it works. Statistics around the world and in places along the border where there’s already a wall demonstrate very clearly that they are effective at deterring attempts, slowing criminals for easier apprehension, and compelling those seeking to enter to use a designated port of entry.
Whether he’s just letting his common sense get the better of him or if he’s simply unwilling to lie on national television, Steny Hoyer said what Democrats know but are unwilling to admit in the Trump era. Walls work. We need to build it now.
