The plan for the introduction of the resolution, it was first described to discuss that officials at three progressive groups that heard of them from the Congress, elections aide but were not allowed, the plans are private.

Miller, asked by anchor Chris Wallace, why a wall is necessary, when most of the drugs are trapped in the ports of entry, said the government statistics on the matter, are interpreted in misleading and simply wrong.

“The problem with the statement that they ‘understand, if 80 or 90 percent of the drugs at the ports of entry” — that is, as if one says: you realize most of the contraband at the TSA checkpoints at the airports,” said Miller. “You understand the contraband in there, because you are there for the people, not the inspectors. I assure you, if we had checkers of the same density over each inch and mile of the southern border, they would have prohibited drugs in these areas.”

Miller added that the reason why four times as many illegal immigrants were stopped at the border in the year 2000 compared to the year 2018, to arrest that illegal immigrants are much more difficult, due to the much looser asylum and immigration laws.
