Every town, city, and state is a border town, border city, and border state. Everything that touches our border touches every town, city, and state in this country—and that’s why we have said, and we will continue to say, borders matter; the wall matters. pic.twitter.com/js3JpNp4dj

Thank you @POTUS for prioritizing the safety and security of US Border Patrol Agents and this great Nation! This new border wall system does both, and it’s already making a huge positive difference! #USBP pic.twitter.com/xCAwRkObhc
