Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a unique policy proposal to help secure the United States’ southern border with Mexico Wednesday, telling a local reporter the US should simply “mow grass” in the region so illegal immigrants will be easier to spot.
The House Minority Leader was speaking with the Arizona Republic when she made the bizarre suggestion, blasting the President’s proposed border wall and outlining possible “alternatives” to help stem the flow of undocumented workers into the United States.
“Do you think you can get House Democrats to support something that would result in the construction of something that isn’t already standing at this point, if it brought some assurance for the Dreamers?”
“Let’s sit down and talk this through and see what makes sense, not some commitment to a promise that we’re going to build a wall and Mexico’s going to pay for it […] Let’s talk about where fencing will do, where mowing grass so people can’t be smuggled through the grass,” said Pelosi.
