There are already walls and fences along many parts of the US-Mexican border. DW’s Alexandra von Nahmen spoke to ranchers in Brownsville, Texas about President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.
The US president described the situation at the Mexico border as a national security crisis that requires a wall, saying "it's a great thing to do because we have an invasion." Legal challenges have already been filed.
The US president is underwhelmed with a tentative funding deal that provides much less funding for border security. Trump again insisted that his concrete wall at the US-Mexico border will be built.
President Donald Trump has signed a bill temporarily reopening the government for three weeks. The deal, passed unanimously by Congress, did not include his $5.7 billion funding request for a border wall.
The White House has said President Donald Trump will declare a national emergency on the Mexican border to get funds to build a wall there. DW takes a look at why Trump made the move and whether it can succeed.
