US Congress member Pete Stauber has suggested that the US-Mexico border could be made of US-produced steel, thus helping the mining economy and national security at the same time, according to an announcement made by the US House of Representatives.

Mr. Stauber has accordingly introduced the American Workers for Security Act, advocating that it could ensure the southern border wall be built by steel made of iron ore and taconite sourced from northern Minnesota.

The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has declared its support for the introduction of the bill.
