Democrat Raúl Grijalva gave an interview to The Ed Schultz Show yesterday about the $694M House border bill that passed last week.

He said he opposes the plan because it increases enforcement spending without a plan. He also said it's short-sighted to move FEMA money to border enforcement because it the agency wouldn't have enough money to handle a wildfire disaster.

Grijalva said President Obama should veto the bill and "be bold" in using his executive authority. And he said Republicans should quit using the border issue as an election-year wedge issue.

Grijalva is running for re-election in Congressional District 3, and he is unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Listen to the whole interview here. The segment with Grijalva begins at about 09:30.
