The President of the United States Donald trump announced that the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico has already begun. The video of his speech in Tampa (Florida) published the CNBC.
“We have already started the construction of the wall. We have $1.6 billion, and we started to build large sections of wall,” he said.
Earlier, Donald trump has threatened to halt the work of the government, if Democrats will not vote for the package of immigration bills, including a document on the construction of the wall.
In 2017, the US President signed a decree on the construction of a protective wall on the border with Mexico. First, Donald trump expressed confidence that the project will pay for the Mexican side. In March 2018, the U.S. Senate adopted the law on the budget, in which $1.6 billion was allocated for the construction of the wall. In June, Mr. trump said that the government will ask Congress for more money for the project.
In April of this year, Mr. trump ordered to bring to the protection of the border the National guard. His solution to the American leader explained that “the situation on the southern border has reached a critical point” — because of the flows of migrants, smuggling and drugs.
