One of the very first promises President Donald Trump made to Americans was that he would build a border wall to protect us.
A huge wall. With big, beautiful doors to let the right people in. And we liked the idea so much that it became a touchstone of his campaign. At nearly every campaign event, inevitably the crowd would burst into chant: “Build that wall! Build that wall!”
And it’s my sincerest pleasure to announce to you that the wall will, in fact, be built. Trump made it official just moments ago…
President Donald Trump has issued an executive order for a wall to be built along the southern US border with Mexico.
He also signed an action to strip funds from US cities that are sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants.
Mr Trump said in a TV interview that Mexico would “absolutely, 100%” reimburse the US for his wall.
Building a 2,000-mile wall along the Mexican border was one of his key pledges in the election campaign.
“We’ve been talking about this right from the beginning,” he said as he signed the actions during a ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday.
The executive orders are among several expected on immigration and border security this week.
They are likely to boost national security, restrict refugee access and block the issuing of visas to people from several predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa.
