A career FBI official who served as Border Patrol chief for the Obama administration has come out in support of a border wall.
Morgan gave an interview to Law and Crime in which he defended the White House’s desire to build a wall along the U.S. southern border.
“I’m here today breaking my silence to tell the American people that the president is correct in what he’s doing,” Morgan said in an interview with the Law & Crime Network. “The wall works.”
Also speaking on Jan. 7 during an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Morgan said that border walls “absolutely work.”
“If you look in the past, you don’t have to go too far back in history, that bipartisan legislation that was passed, the Secure Fence Act in 2006 and 2012, bipartisan legislation passed where they built the wall or fence or physical barrier, whatever you want to call it, it’s a wall. It works,” Morgan said.
He said that opponents of a border wall are looking to make a political point.
“I cannot think of a legitimate argument why anyone would not support the wall as part of a multi-layered border security issue,” noting his experience with the FBI in Texas.
People are too concerned about the president’s style and the delivery of his case for a border wall as opposed to the substantive issues at hand, Morgan said.
He added that Trump is correct in calling the issues at the border a national security problem, and that border security professionals think the same.
“Why aren’t we listening to the experts and the people who do it every day? I don’t understand that.”
