“I was disappointed that the president went back to speaking about a wall instead of looking at these strategic investments,” said Torres Small, who represents New Mexico's southern district bordering Mexico.

She says lawmakers should focus on securing the border with technology, not a wall, which is something echoed by Assistant Speaker of the House Ben Ray Lujan.

“Scanning capabilities, cameras drones, those are the areas we are looking to make investments into modernize border security,” Lujan said.
