Attorney General Jeff Sessions sat down with ABC, to discuss the future of President Trump’s border wall.
Sessions says the U.S. will save billions of dollars in the long-term as a result of building a southern border wall.
“I do believe this wall, this barrier is going to be essential in ending the illegality. It will save us billions of dollars because the numbers of people that are coming will be reduced dramatically; the amount of drugs entering our country will be reduced; the amount of people we are housing in detention centers will be declining,” Sessions told “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos.
“We are gonna get people out of the country to these countries that aren’t taking them back after they’re due to be deported. It’s going to save us hundreds of millions — billions of dolllars,” Sessions added.
