“...Using materials originating in the United States...”
A memo from the Department of Homeland Security calls for the immediate construction of a wall on the southern US border with Mexico.
Signed Monday, the DHS memo addresses President Trump’s executive order regarding border security, and includes new policies strengthening deportation efforts and orders to hire more border agents.
Section F of the 13-page memo, entitled, “Border Wall Construction and Funding,” details several orders to begin assembling the barrier, as well as how the administration intends to deal with costs.
The memo also notably includes a clause which orders construction materials to be acquired from US manufacturers “to the maximum extent permitted by law.”
“A nation without borders is not a nation. Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control as it gets back its borders,” Trump declared after signing the executive order last month.
