Not only does Representative José Serrano (D-NY) want to stop President Trump’s border wall, but he wants to build a Statue of Liberty on the Southern border!
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Democratic Rep. José Serrano (N.Y.) on Tuesday spoke out against President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, arguing that a Statue of Liberty should be built there instead.
Serrano made the comment at a Homeland Security markup hearing, where he spoke out against the border wall, NTK Network reports.
“This country should never build a wall to keep people out,” Serrano said. “Should it deal with an immigration issue? Yes, but never, ever, ever build a wall.”
“On the contrary, build another Statue of Liberty on the southern border,” Serrano said. “That’s our message to the world, that statute, not the wall.”
The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor in New York City served as a symbol for immigrants, primarily from Europe, coming to the United States; it was one of the first images of America they would see as ships sailed in.
Serrano also spoke against the cost of the proposed wall and said that it would lead to divisions in the U.S.
