In response to President Trump’s comments today before the National Rifle Association summit, Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) said:

“Today, President Trump’s acknowledged something we Texans have been saying all along: that there are natural barriers on the border that would make a wall unnecessary and impractical.

If the President is sincere, and is ready to collaborate with Democrats and Republicans on the most effective, modern border security tools, I am ready to work. We need to support our border patrol with technology and personnel.

But if he changes his mind yet again, and insists on a comprehensive border wall, he will continue to face bipartisan opposition. Every single Texas border Congressman opposes this wall – because the Americans that live there oppose it, too. I will not give up fighting for my constituents on this.”

Congressman Cuellar represents 280 miles of U.S.-Mexico border.
