Trump in California-Pledges Wall Construction

(Calexico, CA) — President Trump says the government will be building “a lot of wall” on the southern border. Speaking in the border town of Calexico, California today, Trump said the U.S. immigration system is being overwhelmed and is full. He argued that the border situation is an “absolute emergency.” Trump recently declared a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexican border, allowing him to tap into military construction funds for the border wall. He repeated a call to Congress to quickly reform the nation’s immigration system, which he called a disaster.
