Trump Signs Two Executive Orders to Boost Border Security

Trump Signs Two Executive Orders to Boost Border Security

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order to boost border security before his scheduled speech at the Department of Homeland Security.
"The first order is the border security and immigration enforcement improvements, it addresses long-overdue border security issues," White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said during a press briefing. "It will be the first order in that to build a large physical barrier on the southern border."
Trump reiterated earlier Wednesday during an interview that the wall project will start as soon as possible and financed by Washington, but Mexico will "100 percent" reimburse the United States at "a later date."
The cost of the wall to block off the nearly 2000 mile (3200 km) long border has been estimated to be anything from eight billion U.S. dollars to 25 billion dollars. In some parts of the border, different versions of barriers already exist, but most of the border cross through inhospitable wilderness.
"The second order is enhancing the security of the interior of the United States," Spicer said.
"Federal agencies will be unapologetically enforce the law, no ifs, ands and buts," he said.
Spicer said the U.S. government will implement a host of measures to curb illegal immigrants entering the country. (Xinhua)
