President Donald Trump has been firing on all cylinders.
This guy didn’t hesitate to get right to work, as his first few days as POTUS have been extremely active. As his fans anticipated, he’s not pulling any punches.
Just in the last 48 hours, he went on the offensive against possible voter fraud, vowing to kick off a major investigation into the possibility of millions of illegal voters, and he green-lit the Keystone XL Pipeline and Dakota Access pipelines, another sign of forward progress (sorry, liberals).
But what has been one of Trump’s biggest campaign promises? What has he sworn to do from the very beginning? What has prompted more Memes than Bill Clinton ogling Ivanka Trump at the Inauguration?
Putting a stop to the outrageous illegal immigration, particularly along the U.S./Mexico border.
Dubbed “The Wall” by the media, it’s now official: IT’S HAPPENING.
According to Fox News, President Trump signed executive actions that orders the construction of the aforementioned wall, and he also targeted sanctuary cities.
“‘A nation without borders is not a nation,’ Trump declared after signing the measures, while speaking to employees at the Department of Homeland Security. ‘Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.’”
The first order calls for the “immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border” and now, the DHS secretary must take “all appropriate steps to immediately plan, design, and construct” the wall.
Trump has received flak from his supporters over the cost of the wall, and whether or not Americans should help pay for it. But the President has said several times that Mexico will “absolutely” have to foot the bill, though the U.S. will have to ante up initially.

Additionally, the same executive order calls for the hiring of 5,000 more Border Patrol agents and putting an end to “catch-and-release” policies for illegal immigrants. THAT is fantastic news, certainly.
Another order is designed to assist federal immigration agents; it calls for the hiring of 10,000 additional officers and restoring the “Secure Communities” program and other local partnerships. It also prioritizes the deportation of illegal immigrant criminals, and promises to strip federal grant money from sanctuary cities and any cities that harbor illegals.
This is absolutely gigantic. It’s what the American people wanted to hear; it’s a very big reason why Trump is in the White House.
And he’s not wasting any time! HOORAY!
