As the debate in Washington continues over securing the border, and whether President Trump’s wall should be included in that picture, The Show is hearing from some local voices about what they think border security requires.

Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada has lived on the border his entire life.

He was born in Nogales, Sonora, and immigrated to the U.S. side of the border when he was a toddler. He has been in law enforcement there for nearly 52 years, and he said a border wall, like the one the president is fighting for, will do little to stop the flow of drugs into our country.
