I guarantee you that these people DO NOT just grab a child a walk THOUSANDS of miles for criminal activity! This man is a bald face liar! I have family in Mexico. Used to come back and forth. This man is following a call for not letting the US get too BROWN! THEY FEAR WHITES LOOSING CONTROL! It will happen, either way! South & Central America ALREADY MAKE AMERICA DEFINITELY BROWN! ALWAYS HAS BEEN, & IT ALWAYS WILL BE! White people do not know how to get along with others… too bad. your rule won't last long, when you look over the centuries! Your history is ALREADY F-ed up! MEXICANS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE, & shame on this LYING SOB! I live in Texas, & if he's advocating Trump, I guarantee in the near future, that this man will turn up on inequality issues! F what you people think. I care for all people, and do not easily accuse people of things! THIS MAN IS NOT CORRECT! THE ONLY REASON HE SOUNDS DEFINITE ABOUT THINGS WE CAN'T SEE (or you can't… I can) is exactly for that reason! When asked what he thought of the things Trump said, THAT WE CAN ACTUALLY SEE IN PAPERS… TRUTHS LIKE THAT, he wasn't certain, WAS HE? listen to it again… HE'S ADVOCATING TRUMP, SO HE'S GOT TO LIE! THIS LYING SOB!

Finally! someone speaks to a rational person. Great show.. Government shutdown seems to be the only way that this issue will be addressed. If Trump gives in I fear we'll be talking to another Sheriff 30 years from now.

Host: If only Trump and all would quit talking about a wall there could be a compromise." Then proceeds to ask/ talk about Trump's wall for the nineteenth time after said statement. TDS alert. Otherwise kudos to the Daily for interviewing the Sheriff and for sharing his perspective.

Thank god, someone who’s looking at the facts rather than arguing based on principle and pathos. I’ve been saying the same exact things over & over, and I don’t hear a single politicians reflecting these views. They don’t even want to talk about the scourge of gang violence that Mexico and the rest of Central America are experiencing (maybe because that means admitting the US’s efforts to stop it aren’t working). Someone get this guy on TV, maybe he’ll knock some sense into someone on Capitol Hill.

The hoodwinked argument that Trump does not mean literally a wall/barrier as the only solution would be somewhat credible if he hadn't had the bald brigade on TV parroting the virtues of walls last week. And remember, NOBODY knows more about border control tech than him.

I think this sheriff does a better at presenting an actual solution to the issue then anyone else has done so far. walls are necessary in some places and impractical in others. we need to respond to the humanitarian issue at hand.

That is precisely the problem. The President doesn't seem agreeable to budging on the entire wall. EVERYONE agrees there is a problem at the border, but a very expensive, semi effective wall is not the answer.

I think the problem is that this Sheriff thinks he knows what the President means but he doesn't. The president wants a lot of money for just a wall. The humanitarian issue is only a very small part of what this money would go to.
