Wall of Words

Issue

President Trump has sparked a war of words over his signed executive orders mandating the construction of the wall and a mandate for internal immigration enforcement while punishing sanctuary cities.

The Mexican president has officially rebuffed president Trump over his border wall executive order and in an increasing wall of words over his insistence on a billion dollar boondoggle, President Trump is vowing to also crack down on hundreds of US cities which protect undocumented immigrants.

An increasing number of affected officials are agressively pushing back on Trump's executive orders.
