Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., said Sunday there’ll have to be three components to any compromise to address a “crisis” at the nation’s southern border: money for a border barrier, more personnel and better technology.
In remarks on “Fox News Sunday,” Hoeven also insisted border patrol professionals will have to be brought into the discussion to hear “what they need” and “why” they need it.
“It is a crisis," Hoeven declared.
“This is something we've got to get a handle on and that's [why] you need all components — border barrier as well as technology and personnel. It's like a three legged stool.”
“I think we can get to a solution but we are going to have to have all three in a way that we can agree on,” he added. “I'm certainly willing to fund personnel and technology… got to have some money for barrier as well.”
