Former Milwaukee County, Wis. Sheriff David Clarke said that unless the border wall is built, illegal immigrant felons will continue to return to the United States.
Clarke ripped the recidivism rate of illegal immigrants who have been arrested on serious charges.
"You had a segment earlier where a guy was deported 20 times and returned," he said. "Our border is not sealed like President Trump wants [and] these guys are just going to keep coming back."

Clarke said Jose Zarate, the accused killer of Kate Steinle who was acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges this week, was exonerated because of the court he was tried in.
Clarke said that in Wisconsin, he would have called for a federal criminal case against Zarate because state courts "can't be trusted to do this effectively."
"When it involves an illegal alien, it shouldn't be tried in the state court," he said.
"Build the damn wall. You can see every one of those individuals," Clarke added.
