U.S. President Donald Trump is moving forward with building a wall between the United States and Mexico in an effort to thwart illegal immigration. Trump signed two executive orders Wednesday, one to immediately begin the construction and another that ramps up enforcement and threatens to withhold federal funding from cities that don't comply with federal immigration laws. VOA correspondent Aru Pande has more on Trump's announcement.
