The Border Wall flip flop

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (Democrat-NY) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (Democrat-Calif).

… a wall is an immorality …

However back in 2013, she supported a bill that required the construction of 700 miles of border fencing. †

“We still don’t understand why the Democrats are so wholeheartedly against [the wall]. They voted for it in 2006. Then-Senator Obama voted for it. Senator Schumer voted for it. Senator Clinton voted for it. So we don’t understand why Democrats are now playing politics just because Donald Trump is in office,”

Mick Mulvaney

Mulvaney is referring to the Secure Fence Act of 2006, a bill pushed by the Bush administration that provided $1.4 billion for 700 miles of fencing along the southern border. In 2006, Schumer, along with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton (who were then senators from Illinois and New York, respectively) voted in favor of the bill.
