Texas Border Towns’ GOP Rep: Trump’s Border ‘Crisis’ Is A ‘Myth’

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), whose congressional district includes more than 800 miles of the border separating the United States and Mexico, said in an interview published Friday that President Donald Trump’s claim of a “border crisis” is a “myth”

El Paso and other border towns are some of the “safest cities in the United States of America,” Hurd said. The congressman noted that the Trump administration would have to cut off large areas of United States land along the Rio Grand in order to build a wall. “In my district alone there’s the potential of ceding 1.1 million acres of land to Mexico,” Hurd said. “There’s a thing in Texas we care about called private property rights.”
