Border wall

Trump signs executive order authorising border wall between US and Mexico

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order authorising a wall being built along the U.S southern border with Mexico Wednesday.

It was the latest campaign promise that the newly sworn in president made good on during his first full week as commander in chief.

The order came one day after it was announced that Trump would take measures to enact a travel ban on people coming to the U.S. from certain predominately Muslim countries.
