“We are going to build a wall.” – Donald Trump
One of the driving factors of Donald Trump’s presidential win in 2016 was his policy on building a border wall.
As Americans, we do not want to foot the bill of illegal immigrants in our country, nor do we want the criminals over here killing and stealing from AMERICAN CITIZENS.
After the acquittal of an illegal immigrant who murdered American Kate Steinle, there was a shaking in the foundation of our country. People really began to rally around Trump’s idea of a wall, even those who were originally set against it.
On Friday, Trump assured the we WILL be building a wall as he welcomed the new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
“If we don’t get the wall, you’re gonna have a lot of very unhappy people, starting with me,” Trump continued, “We’re gonna get the wall.”
He said the wall is necessary to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs pouring into the U.S.
Trump reiterated his calls for a merit-based immigration system, in order to attract the best and brightest to come to the U.S. legally.
He also called for an end to chain migration and enhanced border security.
Trump noted that illegal border crossings were at a 45-year low in the 2017 fiscal year, and he said he’s confident that Nielsen will “take it to new levels.”
“I have absolutely no doubt you are going to be so outstanding, and I want to congratulate you,” Trump added.
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, officials in California have begun testing border wall prototypes to see how easily someone could climb over the top or dig a hole underneath.
Perhaps our wall will break ground in 2018! We can hope and pray it will!
