Pelosi: I’m for Funding a Border Fence Because ‘That’s Not a Wall’

"Well, you're talking about a fence. You're not talking about a wall, now," Pelosi said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters Thursday that she was fine supporting the continuing resolution, which is currently being debated in Congress and includes at least $1.3 billion in funding for a border fence because “that’s not a wall,” she said.

A reporter asked Pelosi whether she would support passing the continuing resolution, which includes around $1.3 billion for a border fence, citing that some Democratic House Members are concerned about such a continuing resolution.

“I mean, it depends on how you would spend the money. It’s border security. It’s about border security,” Pelosi said.

The reporter pointed out that, within the continuing resolution, there was money allocated for constructing a border fence.

“Well, you’re talking about fence. You’re not talking about a wall, now,” Pelosi said.

The reporter pressed Pelosi on whether she was okay with the $1.3 billion in border fence funding.

Pelosi quickly pivoted and told the reporter that she supports the same provisions backed by Rep. Lucille Roybal Allard (D-CA), who is the ranking member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security.
