Trump's "new" border wall section in California dates to Obama administration

Trump's

"So turn around, that's the way it is". I'm sorry, " Trump said during a roundtable on the border at the US Border Patrol station in Calexico, Calif.

The California trip followed a retreat from earlier threats to close the border, which had sparked fears of serious economic damage.

Congress passed a resolution to terminate Trump's border emergency declaration, but the president signed his first-ever veto to overturn the legislation.

But Trump, who ratcheted up his hard-line immigration rhetoric in recent weeks, declared that his move, which included vetoing a congressional vote, was necessary.

Protesters who had gathered near the barrier flew a balloon depicting Trump as a baby. We can't take you.

On the USA side, dozens of people lined the road that Trump's motorcade took, demonstrating support for his policies.

The border wall is one of the long-standing promises that the US President had made during his 2016 presidential campaign.

It has been said that Trump has used more than enough of its constitutional powers by putting an emergency to build a wall on the border.

The four-time Super Bowl MVP finished the 2018 season with 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. His wideout, Julian Edelman, posted a GIF captioned, "Don't You Dare".

"The cars are very big, and if that doesn't work we are going to close the border", Trump said Thursday at the White House.

According to figures provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials the number of people arrested for illegally crossing the border rose from 47,986 in January to 66,450 in February. He had said that if Congress (US Parliament) did not give 5.7 billion dollars (about 40 thousand crores) for the wall, then again shut down the government. Democrats generally oppose Trump's wall proposal, suggesting instead other types of enhanced border security that they argue would be more effective and less costly.

The remarks, following a week of back-and-forth threats to close the border, risked further muddying the US relationship with its second-largest trading partner.

Although a border closing has been hurriedly pushed back, the tariffs idea is causing confusion.

Praising Mexico for moving recently against drug traffickers, Trump said, "If they continue that, everything will be fine". However it was not clear if he meant that both for the drug smuggling and migration, or whether he wanted the migration issue resolved immediately. Arrests along the southern border have skyrocketed in recent months, and border agents were on track to make 100,000 arrests or denials of entry in March, a 12-year high.

For example, many so-called "Unaccompanied Alien Children" are being smuggled up the border because Trump's agencies will pass them to their illegal immigrant parents living throughout the United States, under policies set by Obama. Trump indicated that he didn't care whether the tariffs he threatened would violate the new trade deal, called the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement, saying Mexico would have to "live with it".

Trump then imitated immigration advocates who have pushed for the USA to adopt more expansive policies to allow asylum-seekers into the country.

"This will supersede USMCA", he added. And I respectfully told and I thank him very much because for the last four days it's been great.
