    Donald Trump: The border wall must be built

    As authorities continue to investigate the apparent attack that killed a border agent in south Texas, U.S. President Donald Trump has taken the opportunity to renew his call for a border wall.
    One border agent was killed and another injured Sunday, while they were on patrol near the area of Van Horn, 48 kilometres from the border with Mexico and about 175 kilometres southeast of El Paso, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
    After the alleged attack, agent Rogelio Martinez, 36, and his partner were transported to a hospital, where Martinez died. Martinez’s partner, whose name hasn’t been released, is in serious condition, according to a spokesperson.
