“I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me –and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
I think we have to address the elephant in the building: what’s the American status regarding immigration after all?
To begin with, Trump released an executive order by which he closed the US border to entrants mostly from Muslim nations. Although it caused a worldwide stir, the measure remained until today.
The Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program ended, which granted residency status to 700,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children. Furthermore, 200,000 Salvadoreans don’t know what the future holds because the White House ended their temporary protected status.
As for the Mexican border wall? Don’t worry. If the project will be completed, it will be out of your tax money, not Mexico’s.
