Republican Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana is on board with President Trump's push for a border wall.
He says he urged Trump to take his message to the people, something he'll do tonight in an address from the Oval Office as he touts the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S. as a national emergency.
Scalise, the House minority whip, says the flow of drugs into the country, human trafficking and other crimes can be linked to the nation not having a secure southern border.
