U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kelly says the country needs to strengthen border security by implementing new technology and building barriers at some parts.
“In certain areas, a barrier or a wall does make sense. Certainly in Yuma, Nogales, Douglas,” the Tucson Democrat told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News on Tuesday.
“There are other places, and if you talk to the Border Patrol about this, what’s needed is more technology and more staffing.”
Kelly called the influx of asylum seekers at the border a “crisis” and said he does not support abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an idea that some Democrats have pushed.
