Pelosi Solutions for Border Security: “Mowing the Grass”

"Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do, where mowing the grass so people can’t be smuggled through the grass."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) suggested that “mowing the grass” along the U.S.-Mexico border could be a possible solution to border security, during an interview with the Arizona Republic on Tuesday.

Pelosi was asked if she would be able to get House Democrats to support funding a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, if it brought some assurance that Dreamers would be protected.

“Well, I’m not the wall’s biggest advocate in Congress,” Pelosi admitted. “But I do know that representatives in the House and senators in that body, from the border areas, have some serious objections to a wall, to a wall. Because they know how detrimental it can be to the community trade, to all of the other aspects of a border.”

Pelosi then said that she would be willing to sit down with Republicans to discuss solutions that do not involve building a wall along the U.S. southern border.

“Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do, where mowing the grass so that people can’t be smuggled through the grass.” Pelosi said. “That’s something – levies, technology, personnel.”
