[Listen to the enthusiastic applauds from the Department of Homeland Security in response to Trump’s talk. Never heard that during Obama;]
President Donald Trump has signed two executive orders in keeping with campaign promises to boost border security and crack down on immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. The executive orders jumpstart construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall, one of his signature campaign promises, and strip funding for so-called sanctuary cities, which don’t arrest or detain immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. The president signed the two orders during a ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security after honoring the department’s newly confirmed secretary, retired Gen. John Kelly.
