Inland Empire Member of Congress Pete Aguilar (D-Redlands) is one of 17 lawmakers from both parties on the congressional committee negotiating with the Trump Administration on border security, including Trump's demand for money to build a wall along the U.S./Mexico border.  In this interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep on "Morning Edition" this morning (Thursday), Aguilar held firm against wall funding, and instead suggests investments in more manpower or broader use of technology to curb illegal immigration.  The Aguilar interview is followed by analysis from NPR Political Editor Domenico Montenaro.
