A sheriff in Massachusetts has come up with an innovative idea on how to build the U.S.-Mexican border wall.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said he wants to create a program called Project NICE, short for National Inmates’ Community Endeavors.
Through the program, inmates at the Bristol County House of Corrections in Dartmouth, Massachusetts would be able to volunteer to provide community services, one of which will be to help build President Trump’s proposed border security wall.
Hodgson, who was just reelected to his fourth term as sheriff, had this to say at his swearing-in ceremony Wednesday, “I can think of no other project that would have such a positive impact on our inmates and our country than building this wall.”
Trump pushed the idea of building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico throughout his entire campaign and promised that not only would it be built, but that Mexico would pay for it.
