President Trump continued to defend the idea of a southern border wall as he made a trip south to McAllen, Texas.

The President held a round table discussion on immigration and border security as he looks to secure $5.7 billion for a wall.

Just like President Donald Trump, Senator Rob Portman (OH-R) agrees there should be better fencing along the Mexico border, but for reasons of his own.

More importantly, he believes that better fencing will help prevent the importation of illegal drugs.
