IT BEGINS: Trump Signs Orders On Border Wall, Immigration Enforcement!
A Nation Without Borders Is Not A Nation
President Donald Trump has signed executive orders on immigration including a directive that tells federal agencies to begin the construction of the border wall.
Sean Spicer also said that President Trump will be stripping away funding from sanctuary cities that are harboring illegal immigrants.
From The Hill:
President Trump on Wednesday signed two executive orders on immigration, including one that directs federal agencies to begin construction of a wall on the border with Mexico, his signature campaign promise.
Trump signed the actions during a visit to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as his aides met in the White House with two top Mexican cabinet officials.
“A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump said during a speech at DHS headquarters. “Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.”
The president said his directive “will save thousands of lives, millions of jobs, and billions and billions of dollars.”
One of the orders signed by Trump calls for the construction of “a large physical barrier on the southern border,” according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
“Federal agents are going to unapologetically enforce the law, no ifs, ands or buts,” Spicer said.
“We’re going to strip federal grant money from the sanctuary states and cities that harbor illegal immigrants,” Spicer said.
