A Massachusetts sheriff says his county inmates could help build President-elect Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the southern border with Mexico.

“I can think of no other project that would have such a positive impact on our inmates and our country than building this wall,” Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson stated on Wednesday night, according to the Boston Globe.

Hodgson did not discuss where the inmates might stay or how they could be transported for the job.

During Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s press conference on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, he said building the wall would be a task of the Trump administration within the first several months.
