Senior White House Adviser Stephen Miller says having control over who enters the country is “fundamental and essential” to national survival.

Miller made the comments during an interview aired on Sunday, also suggesting hundreds of miles of the wall could be built by the end of the next fiscal year if the President gets access to the funds he’s seeking.

The White House official also stressed the President is not ignoring the illegal immigration crisis like past presidents have chosen to.
