Massachusetts sheriff offers up inmates to build Trump's border wall


FALL RIVER, Mass. (KKTV) - A Massachusetts sheriff believes he has a way to aide President-elect Donald Trump in building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson has unveiled an initiative he's tabbing Project N.I.C.E., which stands for National Inmates' Community Endeavors.

He says inmates from the Bristol County House of Correction could volunteer to help build the border wall or clean up disaster sites.

In his bio for Bristol County it states Hodgson continues to remain actively involved with other sheriffs throughout the United States to call for careful and thoughtful immigration reform with an initial emphasis on securing our borders and points of entry.

The Republican sheriff often shares his stance against illegal immigration.
