During a recent appearance on FOX News @ Night, newly elected Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas argued in favor of the border wall, calling it reasonable and realistic.
He says: “A physical barrier is part of a multi-faceted solution… It’s about 234 miles of physical barriers, that’s what the plan calls for, it’s about 75 extra immigration judges on the border to enhance the capacity of enrolling people here, it’s about 750 more border patrol agents, it’s more detention beds so we can house all of the families that are coming across…”
“This isn’t some medieval solution. It is an actual, realistic, reasonable solution. It’s multi-faceted in nature. The funny part is it’s actually what Democrats often talk about on the House floor. It’s like, no, it’s not just physical barriers, it’s all these other things, it’s actually a mix. And I say: Don’t you realize that’s actually our plan?”

Republicans would be very wise to use Crenshaw in this communicator role more often. He is very good at putting the issue into terms which are easily understood by the public. He is also very likable and trustworthy.
