A mother whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant said she supports President Donald Trump's plan to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

"I would go and work on the wall myself," Agnes Gibboney testified Thursday before the House Oversight Committee.

Gibboney, who is in her 60s, appeared on the 15th anniversary of her son's death in 2002 by gang member Luis Gonzalez.

She said she remains in pain over her son's killing.

"I don't even wish it upon the guy who murdered my son," she said.

The mother came to the United States legally. "I am a legal immigrant, it took my family 13 years to legally immigrate to (the) United States," she said in January to Los Angeles TV station CBS 2.

In the CBS 2 interview, Gibboney also said she would work on the wall. "Give me a shovel. Put me to dig the trench. I would be happy to do that. Rain or shine, 100 degrees. 120, I don't care."

Gonzales is scheduled for a 2020 release. Gibboney said in January that she is worried that he will stay in the U.S. and not be deported after his release.
