Trump Could Use Prison Labor To Build Border Wall

Phillip Stucky | Political Reporter

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson offered to allow President-elect Donald Trump to use prisoners from Massachusetts to build the proposed border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, according to a Thursday report in the Boston Globe.

Hodgson offered up the services of prisoners throughout Massachusetts to help construct the wall during his inauguration speech, adding that the project would have a positive impact on the country.

“I can think of no other project that would have such a positive impact on our inmates and our country than building this wall,” Hodgson said at the ceremony at Bristol Community College.

Trump campaigned heavily on a strong immigration policy that centers around keeping people from entering the country illegally. Trump supported a wall on the southern border, and suggested throughout the campaign that he would get Mexico to pay for the costs of building the border wall.
