No member of Congress who represents districts on the U.S.-Mexico border support funding President Trump's signature border wall, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

According to a survey conducted by the publication, no lawmaker representing the region expressed support for Trump’s request for $1.4 billion to begin construction of the project.

The survey included nine members of the House and eight senators from Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California — including four Republican senators.

According to the report, some GOP lawmakers raised concerns about whether the wall is too focused on a physical barrier, rather than funding other high-tech solutions that could prove to be more effective.

“The solution must be a dynamic, multifaceted one,” Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.) told the publication.
