Barr, President Donald Trump’s pick for attorney general, once questioned the effectiveness of a border wall similar to the one the president now wants to construct.

Bush when he was asked in a 1992 interview if he supported a proposal from Republican challenger Pat Buchanan to erect a barrier of ditches and fences along the Mexican border to stem the flow of illegal immigrants. Barr described a side-to-side barrier as “overkill.” (AP Photo/Scott Applewhite, File)
