Dem Joe Manchin Breaks Rank, Admits a Border Wall is Needed!

Senator Joe Manchin appeared on CNN, where he pushed to get host Chris Cuomo to agree that we need a border wall or fence.

Back in January of 2018, Joe Manchin appeared on CNN, where he fought hard for President Trump’s border security agenda.

Watch the video:

WV Metro News also reported that Manchin, during an appearance last week on MetroNews “Talkline,” said the federal government must do more in regards to addressing individuals seeking asylum in the United States.

“I understand President (Donald) Trump is pushing hard. He wants this money for the wall. There is more to securing the border than the wall,” he said. “We have an asylum problem. People think that they can come into our country. Once they set foot in our country, they’ll be kept here and dispersed. In two years, we never find them again.”

From Daily Caller 

Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin got CNN host Chris Cuomo to respond with a “sure” to the idea that a “fencing of some sort” is needed at the border.

The admission came during a wide-ranging conversation on Monday’s edition of “Cuomo Prime Time” about the partial government shutdown and President Donald Trump’s desirefor border barrier funding to be included in any bill he signs.

Diverting away from Trump and others’ stated need for a border wall, Cuomo noted that the contention that “we’re a wall away from safety” is “not true.”

However, both agreed on several things needed to make the border safe, including drones and more agents.

“There are so many things that we need to secure this border,” said Manchin. “But a fence or a secured border, a fencing of some sort is needed also.”

“Sure,” Cuomo responded, but noted also that it is “not a panacea.”

Manchin earlier contended that border security could easily be funded by the $69 billion already passed “for overseas contingency funding” because Trump is “cutting back in Afghanistan.”

“It doesn’t have to come out of programs or out of more debt and that’s what I have been saying,” said Manchin. “Use the money you have before you, in front of you. Use that money if we need to. But let’s get a vote on fixing our immigration problem. We’re going to go down this path every six months to every year it seems like.”

“I’m just saying we have the money in the military,” he added. “The money is there in the military. If those people who don’t want to spend money because it’s being taken away from programs or adding more to debt, whatever the reason may be, we have already voted for over $40 billion for border security. We have voted many times. Chuck Schumer put a bill on the table with $25 billion for the dreamers or DACA. It’s been out there many times.”
