(KSFY) - Fifteen South Dakota lawmakers are sponsoring a resolution calling on lawmakers in Washington to fund construction of southern border wall.

The primary sponsor of the resolution, Rep. Stace Nelson, said in a statement that the "security and sovereignty of the United States shouldn't be a political issue."

The state legislation also thanked ICE for enforcing U.S. immigration laws.
