Baier went on to ask if existing walls should be torn down. Hoyer responded "no" and even admitted after being pressed further that barriers in some areas work.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) rejected his party's narrative on President Donald Trump's proposed border wall during a Wednesday interview on Fox News.
Fox News' Bret Baier pressed Hoyer over comments made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who recently said: "A wall is an immorality. It’s not who we are as a nation. It’s a wall between reality and his constituents. His supporters."
Baier asked if he agreed with Pelosi calling the wall "immoral."
"I don’t agree with that," Hoyer responded. "Look, I don’t think this is an issue of morality; it’s an issue of does it work? And Senator Cornyn, Senator Graham, other members of the United States Senate have put in question whether a wall works, whether that is the best way to secure the border."
