Wounded veteran and veterans advocate Johnny "Joey" Jones said Monday that illegal immigrants should be "championing" President Donald Trump's plan for a border wall with Mexico.

Jones, who lost both legs working as a Marine Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician in Afghanistan in 2010, was the day's "#OneLuckyGuy" on Outnumbered.

He said that the most important thing to many illegal immigrants is the prospect of gaining citizenship or legal residency status.

"They should be championing a wall," Jones, now a veterans advocate, said. "That is the next step for them to find their way to be here legally."

The Dalton, Ga. native said that there can never be effective immigration law reform without first building a wall to prevent a further flow of illegal imigrants.

"Every illegal immigrant in this country should see this wall as a positive," Jones said.
