News: Executive Orders on Immigration in the U.S.

Yesterday, President Trump issued two Executive Orders, one entitled "Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements," which among other things calls for a wall to be built on the U.S./Mexico border, and the other entitled "Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States," which in part calls for cutting off federal funding to sanctuary cities.
