Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) joined “Fox & Friends” to discuss ongoing border security negotiations.

Excerpts of Leader McCarthy’s interview can be found below, or you can watch the full video here.

“In all the meetings we had prior to this where the President put up four different options – the Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Schumer would always say, ‘I cannot discuss anything until you open up the government. But if you open up the government, we will discuss about border security.’ And that meant the wall and barrier. It’s really going to be on the Democrats, who made this promise, today at 1:30 when they walk into that room. If they have the same language that is wrong.”

“I’m looking for safety and security over semantics. I don’t care what they call it but it has to be a barrier. It has to protect.”
