“Will soon be landing in Calexico, California to look at a portion of the new WALL being built on our Southern Border. Within two years we will have close to 400 miles built or under construction & keeping our Country SAFE – not easy when the Dems are always fighting to stop you!” posted the Commander-in-Chief on social media before arriving in Calexico.
The President’s visit comes days after he gave Mexican authorities 12 months to severely limit the flow of illegal immigrants into their country or face new tariffs on produce and automobiles.
