There are "serious concerns" following Wednesday's meeting for negotiations concerning border security, Rep. Tom Graves said Thursday, while adding a summary of a secret "draft proposal" from Democrats was leaked to him, and it does not include wall funding.

"Yesterday, I was very optimistic going into the meeting," the Georgia Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends. "We heard a lot of consensus about the need for border security. But, I left with some serious concerns, quite frankly."

He said he had expected the process to be open and transparent, but Democrats were talking about a proposal they might have.

"Since then I have found out there is a bill that has been drafted that's under lock and key in some House office building that is the Democrats' proposal," said Graves. "It is their legislation that they are not sharing with the public, and we're 15 days away from the expiration of this continuing resolution...I have a summary right here of their draft proposal and in no way does it include any additional funding for any border wall or barrier as they might refer to it."

Graves thinks Democrats are in a "definitions game" while they try to find consensus on what is needed.

"We all know to be true and needed is a wall or a fence or an obstruction at our border that prevents any criminal activity from entering into our country and securing our country as well," said Graves. "Why are they keeping things hidden from the American people?"
