Donald Trump Plans to Sign Executive Orders to 'Build the Wall' and Restrict Immigration From These Muslim Countries

Beginning the first phase to "make America white again."

Published January 25, 2017

As the new president hit the ground running to fulfill campaign promises, sources confirm that President Donald Trump will create executive orders to channel federal resources to start building the border wall.  

The executive action will come in addition to a number of immigration actions that will temporarily restrict immigration from several Muslim countries, reported CNN.  

  1. President Trump tweeted that he will speak on details of the wall during a National Security announcement on Wednesday afternoon

    While he visits with the Department of Homeland Security, the president plans to move forward with his immigration executive actions.  

    According to CNN, the action will initiate construction of the border wall, and repair existing areas of fencing that already exists on the border between the U.S. and Mexico. 

  2. Many people criticized the president's tweet regarding the wall

    When it comes to immigration, a congressional aide said, the administration is expected to order restrictions on refugees, and some people with visas from countries including Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya.
