A concrete wall is not required on the entirety of the U. S-Mexico border, argues Michigan Congressman Elissa Slotkin, a Democratic member of the House Homeland Security and Armed Services committees.

Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., on Sunday, suggested that the GOP is against anti-Semitism for money, and is intent on swaying the Jewish vote.

Slotkin, who is Jewish, made the comments during a speech to a Jewish Democratic summer conference in Michigan.

“There is much discussion in the past nine months or so, eight months, on anti-Semitism,” Slotkin told the audience. “We have what I think is a full-to pack on the attempt of the Republican party, another community and bring them into the flock, and I will be very honest, that’s right: you are not looking for our votes, because we are a relatively small community; you are on the search for our donors, right? You are on the search for our donors and try to sway us.”

“I think people feel very clear about what we mean by anti-Semitism, how it affected us, and that it is just such a dramatic increase in anti-Semitism-events, the violent events, that we simply feel the need to loudly about him,” Slotkin told The Detroit News at the beginning of March.
