In his first public appearance since his supporters’ violent mob violated the U.S. One of his most contentious and noticeable successes was highlighted by Capitol President Donald Trump on Tuesday: wall building along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Trump underlined the hardline stand of his administration against illegal immigration just a week before the end of his term, signing a plaque placed on a section of border wall near Alamo, Texas.
Trump said that, ”In every region that we’ve built the wall, illegal crossings and drug smuggling have plummeted,” taking in consideration of the initiative Democrats fiercely opposed as a waste of money and a blight on the nation
The Trump administration has overseen the building of approximately 724 kilometres of walls that extend more than 3,000 kilometres along the U.S.-Mexico border. Existing smaller barriers along the border were replaced by much of the construction.
Trump did not take responsibility for violence at the Capitol last week in his remarks next to the wall, but urged “peace and calm” and said now is a “time for law and time for order”.
