President Donald Trump is no stranger to South Texas, but campaign season visits to Laredo and San Antonio were all about fundraising instead of fact-finding, so it’s probably fair to say he has moved into the White House with little appreciation of the region’s deep cultural and economic ties with Mexico.
President Donald Trump’s vow to accelerate construction of a “contiguous, physical wall” along the Mexican border is slamming into a Washington reality — who’s going to pay for it and how?
Not us, say the Mexicans.
Take it from a Texan familiar with the vast region known as "La Frontera" to tell the truth about President Donald Trump's plan to build a Berlin Wall of sorts along the entire length of this nation's 2,000-mile southern border.
Congress will move legislation this year providing up to $15 billion to build a wall along the Mexican boundary, Republican leaders said Thursday. But they would not say how they’d prevent the massive project from worsening federal deficits, and were meeting resistance from GOP lawmakers.
It soon could fall on congressional Republicans to plead with President Donald Trump to rescind Thursday’s pay up-or-else threat to Mexican leaders.
Trump used a morning tweet to respond to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto’s rejection of the new U.S. president’s Wednesday directive to begin “immediate” construction of a wall along the countries’ 2,000-mile border.
Less than one week into his presidency, Donald Trump has taken the first steps in making his vision of a massive barrier between the U.S. and Mexico a reality, signing an executive order Wednesday afternoon calling for the “immediate” construction of a sprawling border wall to separate the two nations.
Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd's district stretches 800 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border — the longest of any congressional district — but he said Wednesday night he opposes President Donald Trump's executive order to begin construction of a border wall.
The Republican congressman whose district includes more miles of U.S.-Mexico border than any other came out against President Trump’s new executive action ordering the “immediate construction” of a border wall to block undocumented immigrants from entering the United States.
From the start of his campaign, after he descended the golden escalator to give his announcement speech, Donald Trump promised to build a wall along the U.S.' Southern border. Now, Trump is taking the first steps toward keeping that promise, with an executive action that calls for building that wall.
