According to the White House, Trump has recently signed an executive order to build his famous “wall.” The wall is to span over 2,000 miles on the border between the United States and Mexico. Trump also signed measures to “create more detention space for illegal immigrants along the southern border,” according to Sean Spicer who is a White House spokesman. Some have even questioned if the wall is worth the billions of dollars it no doubt would cost or if it even would do the job. there are some problems with building it however, some of the land they need is privately owned and most likely will result in some long legal procedures. One of the questions that remain is will Mexico pay for the wall? “Ultimately it will come out of what’s happening with Mexico. We’re going to be starting those negotiations relatively soon. And we will be, in a form, reimbursed by Mexico” Trump told ABC.
To keep the wall guarded, Trump called for 5,000 new border patrol agents and 10,000 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to carry out deportations. In the near future, maybe Trump’s wall will be a reality. The question most of us ask now is “when?”
