Texas GOP Rep. Will Hurd: Border wall "least effective" for security, need technology

CBS News Friday, 18 January 2019
Texas GOP Rep. Will Hurd: Border wall least effective for security, need technologyThe partial government shutdown is now in its 28th day – with no talks planned to break the stalemate over funding for a border wall. House Democrats have voted to reopen government agencies, but the president has said he won't open the government without wall money. A few House Republicans are backing the Democrats, including Rep. Will Hurd of Texas. He's the only GOP member representing a district along the southern border, and it happens to include more of the border than any other district. Hurd joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why he opposes President Trump's proposal to build a wall.
