Rep. Green: Pentagon's $1B for Wall Good for National Security

By    |   Tuesday, 26 March 2019 01:23 PM

The Pentagon's move to approve $1 billion for 57 miles of border wall is good for national security, Rep. Mark Green, who sits on the House Oversight and Homeland Security committees, commented Tuesday.

"We know fences work," the Tennessee Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "That argument is settled. Clearly, the president has the authority to do this. I think the guys at the Pentagon know that border security is national security and they understand their mission is securing the nation...border security is national security and they are doing their part."

Green said lawsuits will likely be attempted over the funding, but the concern is getting the border secured and the nation must move forward quickly to do that.

"I believe and I've said before it is a national crisis," said Green, who added that he agrees with President Donald Trump that there is a crisis.

"Three hundred Americans are dying every week from heroin overdose," said Green. "Ninety percent of the heroin is coming across the southern border."

He said he also believes there are many Democrats from Trump districts who are ready to move on and say they're for border security because they're "tired of having" the conversation about it.

Meanwhile, Green said he thinks Oversight Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., should step down as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee because of his actions before special counsel Robert Mueller's report concluded.

"Many times he mentioned there was credible evidence he had seen and verified," said Green.'After a two-year lengthy investigation by a very respected prosecutor, we have no evidence of collusion. In fact, probably the only collusion has been between the liberal media and DNC to throw the 2020 election."
