McConnell: "Silly" To Call Walls Immoral; Clinton And Obama Voted For Border Barrier In 2006


U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding the need to secure our border and fund the government.

SEN. MITCH MCCONNEL: Now look, walls and barriers are not immoral. How silly. Enforcing our laws wasn't immoral back in 2006 when then-Senator Clinton and Senator Obama and our friend the Democratic leader were proud to vote for physical barriers.

The only things that have changed between then and now are the political winds, and of course, the occupant of the White House. So this is no new-found principled objection, it is just political spite. A partisan tantrum being prioritized over the public interest.
