John Yarmuth: We Dems ‘Have Always Voted for Border Security, We’re for Border Security’

‘If there’s this emergency at the border, why isn’t [Trump] using the money he already has?’

RUSH EXCERPT:

YARMUTH: “We have always voted for border security. We’re for border security. We’re for smart border security. We don’t write blank checks for $5 billion. If the administration want a wall so badly, they ought to come to Congress, make the case and see if they can sell us on that’s not what the president he’s said, I want $5 billion for a wall. We gave him in the last Congress gave him $1.6 billion for border security. He spent only 6% of that. If there’s this emergency at the border, why isn’t he using the money he already has? This is really about, I think, being very good fiduciary officers and making sure when we spend money, we spend it in a justifiable way.”
