Gutiérrez On Kelly’s Comment That President’s Campaign Was Not Fully Informed On The Border Wall
Washington, DC – Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) issued the following statement in reaction to news that Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly said that the President was “not fully informed” as a candidate on the promises he made about the border wall he supports. Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez attended the meeting and is a Member of the Judiciary Committee and the Chair of the Immigration Task Force of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
I can confirm that Chief of Staff Kelly said today that the President’s campaign was not fully informed about the wall he was promising to voters. Kelly went on to say that many campaigns are not fully informed about every policy and that campaigning and governing are two different things and that governing is harder. Kelly took credit for educating the President on the wall and that a concrete barrier from sea to shining sea was no longer the conception of border security barriers supported today by the White House.
