In an interview with Chuck Todd on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, California Governor Jerry Brown vowed to fight Trump’s planned border wall, and said it was not the “Christian” thing to do.
“The wall to me is ominous. It reminds me too much of the Berlin Wall,” Brown told Todd. “When I see that 30-foot wall I worry somehow, ‘Are they trying to keep me in or keep them out?'”
He vowed to fight the process – not with “stupid lawsuits” but in a “strategic” way.
“I don’t like that wall, number one. And to the extent that that violates law, certainly I would enforce that,” Brown said. “We’re not going to sit around and just play patsy and say, ‘Hey, go ahead. Lock us in. Do whatever the hell you want. Deport 2 billion, 2 million people.'”
“No, we’re going to fight, and we’re going to fight very hard. But we’re not going to bring stupid lawsuits or be running to the courthouse every day. We’re going to be careful. We’ll be strategic.”
“You don’t treat human beings like that,” Brown said, claiming that Trump should “reconnect with some of his conservative evangelicals.”
