President Trump is delivering on his pledge to protect the border from undocumented immigrants.
On Wednesday, Trump called for tripling the size of ICE and hiring of 5,000 border officers, the New York Post reports.
Trump also signed an executive order to build a border wall with Mexico another to penalize sanctuary cities.
“A nation without borders is not a nation,” the president declared. “We are going to restore the rule of law in the United States. Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.”
Trump said sanctuary cities, such as New York, have “caused immeasurable harm to the American people and to the very fabric of our Republic.”
Trump again spoke of the importance of a wall.
“As I’ve said repeatedly, we’re going to get the bad ones out, the criminals and the drug dealers and the gangs and gang members and cartel leaders,” the president said.
“The day is over when they can stay in our country and wreak havoc. We are going to get them out, and we are going to get them out fast.”
