A quartet of Democratic Senators have introduced legislation that would not allow government funds to be used to live-stream border wall construction activities.
That comes after the Washington Post reported that the Trump Administration wanted to set up web cams to record that construction--critics of the Trump border policy have challenged that a wall is actually being built.
“The only idea dumber than building a so-called ‘impenetrable’ wall along our southern border is livestreaming it,” said Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.). “Trump has already wasted billions on his border wall boondoggle, we shouldn’t waste a single dollar on a wall-cam.”
Joining Markey on the letter were Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).
