Donald Trump orders building on US-Mexico border wall………….

President Donald Trump on Wednesday ordered work to begin on planning and building a wall on the Mexican border, sounding a hardline tone on immigration as he moved to fulfill a key campaign pledge.

The US leader instructed officials to begin to “plan, design and construct a physical wall along the southern border” and — perhaps more problematically — see how it could be funded.

“A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump said, echoing former president Ronald Reagan, as he visited the Department of Homeland Security to sign two executive orders.

“Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders,” the Republican president said.

Stemming immigration was a central plank of Trump’s election campaign.

His signature policy prescription was to build a wall across the 3,200-kilometer border between the United States and Mexico.
