President Donald Trump is readying several executive orders related to immigration and national security, including actions to build a wall along the Mexican border and to restrict the refugee program, according to several news reports.
Trump is expected to begin by signing an order on Wednesday to start the process of building a wall during a visit to the Department of Homeland Security, according to the New York Times. His order to start building the wall will also include provisions to increase staff at Customs and Border Protection and will require the Department of Homeland Security to make public how much aid it gives to Mexico, CNN reported.
