Rep. Crenshaw: Wall Crucial Part of Border Security

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

The wall is a crucial part of any kind of border security, and President Donald Trump's call for $5 billion to help finance it is not a large part of the national budget, Rep. Dan Crenshaw said Wednesday.

"I spent a whole career infiltrating places, and when we came up upon a wall, it matters," said the Texas Republican and former U.S. Navy SEAL on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

"It's a mitigating factor if you're trying to enter or cross from point A to point B."

"The typical argument being heard from Democrats is it doesn't make sense, it's too expensive, it's medieval," Crenshaw added.

"It's .1 percent of our entire federal budget is what we're talking about. That's what $5 billion ends up being. The president and [Vice President] Mike Pence, they offered about $2.5 million. They're trying to meet halfway, but the Democrats are refusing to budge on this."

That's because they "hate the word 'wall,'" said Crenshaw. "For some reason they don't value this idea of border security. They don't value the sanctity of our borders. That's really problematic, especially for a state like Texas. We're on the front lines down there."

He added that Democrats want to make points against Trump by destroying his campaign promises, but that is coming at the expense of national security.

"We saw this migrant caravan coming in last night," he said. "You know what stopped them? The wall. And that's not even a very good wall."
