On Wednesday's broadcast of Greta Van Susteren's new show on MSNBC, "For the Record," House Speaker Paul Ryan said there were many possible ways to get Mexico to help pay for building a wall on the border. Ryan also said a cost estimate of between $8-14 billion was "about right."

We agree with that goal, and we will be working with him to finance construction of a physical barrier, including the wall, on the southern border.
