White House

Trump signed Wednesday a presidential decision on the wall and the associated border security. Also he unrolled the plans for stricter immigration laws. That confirmed the White House Wednesday.

The building of the wall is, according to White House spokesman Sean Spicer “more than just an electoral promise”. “This will be the current spread of drugs, crime and illegal immigration to the united states.”

The plans for the wall are very controversial. Human rights activists say that Trump with his initiative, the rights and freedoms of millions of threatens. “The wall is political theatre at the expense of citizens ‘rights”, said a spokesperson of a large southern group that advocates for immigrants.

“It has nothing to do with safety in the border region: figures show that these border areas is among the safest of the US. Here tens of thousands of heavily armed, poorly trained burgerpatrouillers drop will only cost lives. It changes all the cities in this area in military zones.”
