With voters wondering whether President-elect Donald Trump is really going to build a wall along the southern border to help slow the rate of illegal immigration, at least one person is confident he can and he will fulfill his most talked about campaign promise.
“We are going to build the wall,” House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) wrote in an op-ed for Fox News on Friday. “In fact, we are already starting to work on an emergency plan in Congress to build the tough barriers we need along the border, close all gaps, and defend this country’s sovereignty.”
They physical barrier will be accompanied by an increase in border patrol agents and aerial surveillance, McCaul explains. Trump offered similar details in his highly anticipated immigration speech in August, dispelling any rumors that he had “softened” on the issue.
