Sen. John Kennedy: Democrat Border Wall Critic 'Parachuted in From Another Planet'
Louisiana Sen. John N. Kennedy said Thursday on "The Story" that a Rhode Island Democrat who slammed the idea of building a wall on the border with Mexico "parachuted in from another planet."
Kennedy was reacting to previous guest David Cicilline, a Congressman from Providence, who said that his party believes border security is important but that a wall is unnecessary.
"The Congressman who was just on... I think he just parachuted in from another planet," Kennedy said. "That's just not productive."
Kennedy compared Congressional infighting on the topic of the wall to the 1976 "Entebbe Raids" carried out by commandos in Uganda.
He said all lawmakers should be able to agree on three key points:
"Legal immigration is good for America. Illegal immigration is illegal [and] bad for America," he said, adding that "any fair-minded person" can find via a ten-minute internet search that a border wall is the best solution to the problem.
Kennedy also reacted to Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who ripped Trump in an op-ed on January 1.
