Skip to comments.Cornyn: No Border Wall Needed Between Texas and Mexico (Wants a virtual wall built instead)

Texas senior U.S. Senator says that building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border is not the solution to border security. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said during a tour of the border on Tuesday, Its more than just a physical obstacle. In a press conference following the river tour, Cornyn told reporters, What we need is a virtual border.
As reported by the local Fox News affiliate in the Valley, Cornyn was touring the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge near the Texas-Mexico border. Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) was also with him.
When he was on the border near Anzalduas Park near Mission, Texas, the Texas senator was asked about a border wall, an issue which has been at the center of the 2016 GOP presidential primary election.

Why can he not extend the same security for American citizens on their country?
Yes, Texas does have one RINO US Senator.
RINOs must be eliminated to keep us safe.
Coryn is a Vichy Republican..
open borders, vote cruz, Kasich or help the establishment get their contested convention. How dare you dirty peasants who vote have a say to break up their elitist parties and gravy train.
He probably lives in a gated (walled) community with security guards.
Cornyn is truly playing with half a deck. And people wonder ,”Why Trump?”
Virtual walls can be turned off at the flip of a switch. Surveillance drones can fly around with nobody taking action on what is seen, with the ruling class claiming that they are doing something. Physical walls have to be torn down to become ineffective.
Given how poorly that worked in Arizona, it means he really doesn't want any kind of effective barrier.
Reminds me of the old TV show WKRP Cincinnati. The newsman Les Nessman had an imaginary wall around his desk. All it was was some tape on the floor, but Les got mad when anybody walked through his “wall.”
We tried very hard to defeat Cornyn the last election in the Primary. He knows how badly most of us despise him. It’s hard to defeat an incumbent.
Yeah...That’s the ticket!!!
Then we can stop the “virtual” illegals!!!!!
He means virtually nothing to stand between the US and mexico. Vurtual walls are a joke they keep telling us. That could have been done by now.
It was not.
Here’s my idea for a “virtual fence”. Don’t let foreign criminal invaders live here. Don’t give them education, healthcare, drivers licenses, and tax ID’s. Send them to prison, send anyone who hires them or hides them to prison. That is the way real countries that care about their citizens take care or this problem. That is how Mexico takes care of this problem.
You Can Not have a War on Drugs, without Drugs. There is NO WAY IN HELL The Mexican Border will EVER BE CLOSED or Illegal Immigration will be Halted in ANY WAY. Any Attempt to do so will Severely Cripple the War on Drugs by removing drugs from the WAR.
Aint NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
It was intended to be fully operational by 2011. Instead it became a major headache for both the Bush and Obama administrations.
The virtual wall is just one more ruse used by the lying, open borders frauds who want no border security. Looks like Cornyn wants to give this ruse another go.
We already have a “virtual wall” it is “virtually non-existant”
Each migrant, who works for piddling wages, makes great wealth for their employers. Those employers simply don’t want the spigot turned off and pay off politicians to keep the supply of cheap labor constant. Combine this vested interest with the One World/No Borders Marxist ideologues in the Obama administration and witness American culture irrevocably transformed.
M’thinks the pelf associated with the trade at the border is floating the economy, and trickling into government after several concience-assuaging exchanges.
Just a guess. I smell something funny.
Coryn miss all this ?
