Though President Trump is waffling on what to do about Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order (DACA or Dreamers), he appears to be moving forward with executive orders to build the wall that Mexico will pay for and end Obama’s catch and release practice for illegal immigrants caught at the border. According to spokesman Sean Spicer in a press conference this morning.
Trump is expected to use the Secure Fence Act of 2006 as the congressional basis for funding the wall.
Spicer said the administration would look into ways to strip sanctuary cities of federal funding. He also said immigration laws will be enforced.
Trump is heading to the Department of Homeland Security.
Spicer said this morning again that the priority is to deport criminal aliens and the administration would try to be compassionate with the Dreamers.
