President Trump visits Alamo, Texas to tout border wall
President Seeks To Highlight His Administration’s Efforts To Combat Illegal Immigration
US President Donald Trump on Tuesday visits the Alamo, Texas, near the border with Mexico. During the visit, he is expected to highlight his administration’s efforts to combat illegal immigration..
This is the president’s first public appearance since last Wednesday, when he addressed a crowd of his supporters, saying that the presidential election results were rigged and urging them to “fight,” after which protesters invaded the Capitol building..
Before heading to Texas, Trump told reporters that the steps to impeach him aroused great anger, adding that he “does not want violence.”.
Asked if he was responsible for the attack on the Capitol, Trump said his words that day were “absolutely appropriate.”.
Meanwhile, the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives on Tuesday continues efforts to remove the president from office..
Immigration was a major focus of Trump’s 2016 campaign, when he frequently called for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border..
By the end of his presidential term, about 700 km of the wall had been built, but most of the structures only replaced the previously existing barriers.
On the eve of Trump’s visit to Texas, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolfe suddenly resigns.
Ahead of Trump’s trip, the Southern Poverty Law Center called for the visit to be canceled, saying it “would only exacerbate the damage and lead to further violence.”.
“The border communities have resisted this administration’s sanctimonious plans for years.. These communities, from San Diego to Brownsville, have been victims of unthinkable violence caused by the president’s anti-immigrant rhetoric and xenophobic policies, ”said Efren Olivares, deputy director of legal affairs at SPLC..
