As he should. Sounds like a reasonable plan. I will say I don't know if I like the idea of this commission that will have to say the border is secure. It will need to be bi-partisan and shouldn't hold enough power to hold the process hostage. No border will ever be 100% secure especially as large as ours is, it is next to impossible to achieve.
