Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) is criticizing President Trump's push to build a wall on the border with Mexico.
“Building a wall is the most expensive and least effective way to secure the border,” Hurd said in a statement late Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.
“Each section of the border faces unique geographical, cultural, and technological challenges that would be best addressed with a flexible, sector-by-sector approach that empowers the agents on the ground with the resources they need.”
“Big Bend National Park and many areas in my district are perfect examples of where a wall is unnecessary and would negatively impact the environment, private property rights and economy,” Hurd said.
Instead, he promoted an "intelligence-led approach."
