It’s been less than a week since his inauguration, but President Trump is wasting no time following through on promises made to the American people, as he is reportedly set to sign executive orders that will begin the first stages of the southern border wall in addition to putting a temporary ban on Syrian refugees.
One of President Trump’s core promises during the election, which he also reiterated during his inauguration speech, was to “Make America Safe Again” by getting tough on crime, putting a temporary ban on refugees from terrorist heavy countries and building a “big beautiful” border wall.
Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!

It looks like Trump will be addressing all three of those within a 24 hour period, as tonight he also sent out a tweet commenting that if Chicago can’t get it’s crime wave under control, he will consider “sending in the feds’.
If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible “carnage” going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!

Then, the big news of the night started making its rounds online as reports came out that President Trump is expected to sign several executive orders to get the ball rolling on securing the border, as well as halting the flow of refugees from “terror prone” countries.
President Donald Trump is expected to sign executive orders starting on Wednesday that include a temporary ban on most refugees and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries, according to several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter.
Trump, who tweeted on Tuesday night that a “big day” was planned on national security on Wednesday, is expected to order a multi-month ban on allowing refugees into the United States except for religious minorities escaping persecution, until more aggressive vetting is in place.
Another order will block visas being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified.
In his tweet late on Tuesday, Trump said: “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!”
The border security measures likely include directing the construction of a border wall with Mexico and other actions to reduce the number of illegal immigrants living inside the United States.
The sources have said the first of the orders will be signed on Wednesday. With Trump considering measures to tighten border security, he could turn his attention to the refugee issue later this week.
Stephen Legomsky, who was chief counsel at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Obama administration, said the president had the authority to limit refugee admissions and the issuance of visas to specific countries if the administration determined it was in the public’s interest.
“From a legal standpoint, it would be exactly within his legal rights,” said Legomsky, a professor at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis. “But from a policy standpoint, it would be terrible idea because there is such an urgent humanitarian need right now for refugees.”
Leave it to leftist professors living their lives in a liberal bubble surrounded by safe spaces (universities) to claim Trump’s security policies would be a “terrible idea”. Considering Trump had his finger exactly on the pulse of the American voters, while the “experts” and pundits have never been more wrong, I think it’s safe to say our new president shouldn’t go taking the advice of any leftist pseudo intellectuals.
It’s interesting to note that the report states Trump’s ban will exclude those fleeing their country’s due to religious persecution, which could apply mainly to Christians in the Middle East who have been facing extreme persecution under the rule of ISIS.
Upon President Trump signing these executive orders, effectively making good on his campaign promise to “build the wall” and secure our nation’s borders, I will eagerly be waiting for apologies from the liberal journalists who cranked out articles during the election with titles like, “Donald Trump Won’t Build The Massive Border Wall He Said He Would ” and “5 Conservatives Who’ve Admitted Trump Won’t Actually Build A Border Wall“.
The very definition of “fake news” right there, when in reality President Donald Trump is busy making America safe again one executive order at a time.
In case you’re wondering what the Trump border wall project might look like in action, here is an artists rendition that seems spot on.
The speed and effectiveness that President Trump is implementing his America First agenda should tell you one thing…that our government has been so completely under the control of globalists and multi-national interests that no career politician would ever be capable of turning this nation around to once again focus on the people. Drain the swamp indeed.
Keep in mind, America averted a 550% increase in refugees under Hillary Clinton if she were to have won the election instead of Trump. If you’ve read any of the headlines coming out of European countries over the past few years that have opened their door to Middle Eastern and African refugees, you could accurately predict America’s future under Hillary who would have enacted the same policies.
If you thought the leftists were losing their minds during the inauguration, you haven’t seen anything yet when President Trump officially starts the process of building the border wall.
