Fox Nation Rep. Andy Biggs: Wall Compromise Is 'Just a Lousy Spending Bill With a Little Border Deal on Side'
Not already a Fox Nation member?
Congressman Andy Biggs said on "Reality Check with David Webb" on Fox Nation that the bipartisan border security compromise announced Monday is "just a lousy spending bill" with negligible funding for a wall on the Mexican border.
"It's just a crappy spending bill with this little border deal on the side," Biggs said Tuesday.
The bill is a product of a bipartisan group of lawmakers led by Rep. Nita Lowey, a Democrat from New York's Hudson Valley, and GOP Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama.
Biggs said the bill shows that Congress has "failed to deliver to CBP (Customs & Border Protection)."
"We are not giving ICE everything it needs to detain people," he said, calling the legislation "lousy."
Webb responded that the bill shows that "it's time to go to the wall on this issue, [both] literally and metaphorically."
"Security is the issue here," he said.
