Now we’re going to check in with the Editorial Board at The Arizona Republic. It’s a regular segment where we’ll talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

The paper and its partners in the USA Today Network just finished a lengthy series on President Trump’s proposal to build a new, extended wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

A recent column argues that for the U.S. to truly effectively construct a wall, it should look to Israel.

With me to talk about that and some of the specifics is Phil Boas, director of the Republic’s Editorial Department.
