Rep. Veronica Escobar (D., Texas) said on Thursday that border walls “don’t work” and appeared to believe the United States should remove existing wall along the U.S. southern border.

“We know walls don’t work, that they don’t stop drugs. That they don’t stop migration,” said Escobar, who represents the congressional district–the 16th–where the border town El Paso is located.

The article goes on to state the following:

CNN’s “New Day” anchor John Berman asked Escobar that if she believes walls don’t work, would she be in favor of removing existing wall.

“So El Paso has a wall. You say it doesn’t work. Would you ever call for the removal of the wall there?” Berman asked.

“You know, it’s really ugly, it is I think a monument to division. We’ve always had fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border,” Escobar responded. “I’m a lifelong resident, it always was there. But the bigger, taller and uglier they get, they just become symbols. Personnel, technology, there are better ways to make sure that we live in secure areas.”
