'Enough Is Enough': 380 Sheriffs Tell Congress Trump's Border Wall Must Be Built
380 sheriffs from 40 states are calling on Congress to take action on building President Trump's proposed border wall and securing America's southern border.
“Without border security and immigration reform, more Americans will continue to be victims of crime. Now is the time to act,” said a letter signed by the sheriffs.
Sheriffs from around the country sent a letter to all Members of Congress outlining the need for congressional action on securing America’s border.

Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who's leading the push, explained on "Your World" that Congress' inaction on illegal immigration is impacting law enforcement's ability to keep their communities safe.
He particularly took aim at sanctuary policies, which he said undermine cooperation between local, state and federal law enforcement, making it harder for America’s sheriffs to protect citizens and legal residents.
"Enough is enough," Hodgson said. "And the sheriffs are speaking up and joining together with our constituents in our communities and saying, 'You need to now act, Congress. And let's stop with this whole blueprint of inaction.'"
