Donald Trump took aim at your work on the border yesterday, saying you should have done a better job protecting the border. What do you make of that? Well, I don't think he understands the challenge, obviously.
I was the governor of Texas for 14 years. The governor of that state with the 1, mile Mexican border. When it became abundantly clear that the president wasn't going to deal with this immigration issue, we acted last summer.
