Dem Sen Cardin: ‘The Wall Is Not Going to Make Us Safer’

On this weekend’s broadcast of  “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) said President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border was “not going to make us safer.”

Partial transcript as follows:

WALLACE: On immigration, as I was talking about, there’s an obvious deal to be made there. On the one hand you and some Republicans want to give protection to the DREAMers, on the other hand, Republicans and especially this president want to offer border enforcement including funding for the wall, would you be willing to compromise their?

CARDIN: We need to get the DREAMer issue done. It should not be connected to anything else.

WALLACE: That’s not a compromise because you have something you want and immigration, they have something they want, why not put them together?

CARDIN: The president but the deadline when he gave six months earlier this year. We have a deadline on the DREAMers. We should do better border security. We are for border security, but let’s make it sensible border security. Let’s deal with technologies on the border, let’s deal with the real problems there. The wall is not going to make us safer.
