U.S. Senator Steve Daines said he supports President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency over border security because a wall along the southern border would limit the quantity of meth flowing into Montana from Mexico.
“It’s a southern border problem, but it’s a northern border state that is directly affected by what’s going on. Mexican meth is coming into Montana, and we have to continue to work on multiple fronts to address this issue,” said Daines, a Bozeman Republican, during a meeting Friday with the Bozeman Daily Chronicle’s editorial board. “We need to secure the southern border, and I support the president’s efforts to address this issue.”
