El Paso City Council member Claudia Rodriguez called out the city’s Democratic mayor Wednesday night, saying he has been caught in a lie.
“Absolutely not,” Leeser told host Dana Perino. “One of the things we need to learn and make sure we do is that we take the politics out of this.”
“The chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, Chief Ortiz, does not support declaring a state of emergency at this point,” Leeser said during the Sept. 27 meeting. “And the White House has asked at this point for us not to do that.”
