WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Tuesday after President Trump’s address from the White House.

“We have a crisis on our southern border. Our law enforcement personnel are being overrun. We need more border patrol agents, more emergency medical technicians, more immigration judges, and yes more wall,” Sen. Lee said.

“We already have 650 miles of wall on the southern border. But it is not enough. President Clinton built wall, President Bush built wall, and even President Obama built wall. Walls work. Let’s come together, give the Department of Homeland Security the money they need to address this crisis, and end the shutdown.”
