Wednesday, President Donald Trump met with officials at the Department of Homeland Security and while there, signed two separate executive orders that are intended to crack down on illegal immigrants living in the United States, as well as remove some of the roadblocks that would prevent the construction of a border wall with Mexico.
The executive order will strip federal funding to “sanctuary cities”, localities in the nation that refuse to arrest illegal immigrants.
Border security had long been a campaign cry of then candidate-Trump who initially argued that Mexico would be the entity paying for the wall, though the President has in recent days backed down from this component.
In the President’s Inaugural Address, he stated, “We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own.. But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future. We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.”
