John Cornyn (Senate-Texas) Disses People Who Wanted a Physical Wall on the Border

I wonder if the Republicans who pushed for the immigration bill to be passed and a Great Wall of Texas to be built are feeling a little, uh, TRASHED right about now. First, a bit ago, he said "It was only a symbolic gesture" and then yesterday.

“What are those people thinking in Washington, D.C.?” Cornyn said is the phrase most people probably utter when thinking about national debates and decisions.

He acknowledged the amount of anger and emotion registered by many in the country over Washington’s decision to build a multibillion-dollar fence to keep out illegal immigrants.

The wall, Cornyn said after the event, “is a 19th-century solution to a 21st-century problem.”

In an election year, voting either way was a losing situation, Cornyn explained: Voting for the wall would create a large visual symbol on the border, but voting against it would have been perceived as being “weak” on border security.

A shell game, in other words.
