A newly elected Congresswoman is speaking out about physical barriers on the border, saying they could make sense, but only when they are strategically placed.
Xochitl Torres Small told the Albuquerque Journal it’s important to place barriers according to the terrain.
She added that if the barrier delays someone 20 minutes, that makes a big difference in an urban area where agents can respond quickly.
She says when it takes days to cross a desert, the delay doesn’t do a whole lot of good.
Torres Small also stated that the wall does not address the asylum issue.
