Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jim Lamon of Arizona said Friday that the “Remain in Mexico” policy needed to be made into law to secure the border.

Lamon told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show that he was “all in” for Mexico’s agreement to spend $1.5 billion to improve “smart border” border technology.
