Build the border wall built and forbid sanctuary cities
The governor's first duty is to Secure the public & Enforce the rule of law. That's why we will never have sanctuary cities when I'm Governor. The Wall - You can't have a nation without borders. Our leaders need to follow through on
their promise to build the wall, and we'll do what the President needs us to do to secure the border. Sanctuary Cities - They're illegal, and by definition they encourage lawlessness. They won't happen when I'm governor.
