Building the Great Wall of the United States
President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday regarding national security. The order includes the initial building of a border wall with Mexico. Mr. Trump laid out a vision of fortifying borders and removing the undocumented immigrants from the U.S. The concept of a border wall with Mexico has echoed since President Trump’s candidacy announcement in June 2015. “I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me —and I’ll build them very inexpensively,” Trump said in June 2015. “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall.” This executive order also indefinitely blocks Syrian refugees and halts immigration from other parts of the Middle East, such as Iraq, Iran and Sudan.
