President Trump is maintaining his hardline stance on the necessity for a southern border wall, and is highlighting the dangers posed by illegal immigration.

In a pair of tweets Sunday, the president referred to statistics that ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of assaults, sex crimes and violent killings.

The president citied Patrick Buchanan, a former assistant to the president for communications under several prior administrations, when saying the U.S.’s southern border will eventually be militarized and defended.

President Trump went on to say the great people of our country demand proper border security now.
