WASHINGTON – Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, spoke yesterday with Fox’s Harris Faulkner about the crisis at the southwest border and his recent trip with President Trump to see new barrier construction.

On Trump’s Border Wall System:
“[Trump] is going forward with getting the fencing built. We went down with him last Friday. We were able to see the fence and demonstrate to the American public how different this is from what we’ve used in the past, how successful it is, and to highlight the problem [at the border].”

On McAleenan Leading DHS
“The president – in making this shift – is trying to…highlight border security…The head of Customs and Border Protection seems to be the perfect person…to highlight that [border security] is the top priority in the department for the foreseeable future.”

On Democrat Inaction on Border Crisis:
“We need the Democrats to finally give us the resources for the things they said we needed all along…They said we needed people and technology resources on the border to secure it.
