President Donald Trump have ordered for the construction of a Mexican border wall. It will be his first step to crack down on immigrants as he have promised his voters.
He have signed the executive order for the wall during an appearance at the Department of Homeland Security. It is a “plan, design and construct a physical wall” along the 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) US-Mexico border.
Mexico’s president Enrique Pena Nieto on the other hand have cancelled a summit with Donald Trump for president of U.S demanding that Mexico should pay for the border wall. After the recent tweets from the U.S. president the summit was scrapped.
Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 25, 2017
of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 26, 2017
The border wall was a promise of Mr. Trump’s campaign, during which he argued it is vital to gaining control over the illegal flow of immigrants into the United States. This is just the starting of the crack down on immigrants.
