More Democrats have come out against Speaker Nancy Pelosi, after she claimed that a border wall is “immoral”.

Speaking to reporters Friday, freshman Democrat Ben McAdams said Pelosi’s claim gets in the way of actually negotiating and finding a common ground.

He said he was open to bi-partisan discussion about border security, adding that “some physical barriers in strategic places have got to be part of the solution.”

McAdams has come to the defense of other House Democrats, who have taken an issue with Pelosi’s rhetoric, and have called for open discussions with all options on the table.
