Build Mexico wall: US President Trump’s executive orders on immigration

Washington:President Donald Trump signed two executive orders Wednesday aimed at launching the construction of a wall on the Mexican border and restricting illegal immigration, moving aggressively in his first week in office to fulfil major campaign promises.

Declaring illegal immigration “a clear and present danger to the interests of the United States,” one order seeks to halt what it called a “recent surge” of illegal border crossings, crack down on potential acts of terror, reduce the operability of transnational criminal organisations, and speed the removal of those living illegally in the country.

Here are key points of both orders, one entitled “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements,” and the other on “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States.”
