President Trump will be speaking to the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday about issues regarding immigration and national security.

The President will be signing executive orders concerning border security and immigration as he continues his first week in the office.

The executive orders are expected to include stricter vetting of immigrants, restriction on visas and access to the USA for refugees.

President Trump has confirmed on Twitter that his promise to build a wall along the Mexican border will be kept.

He also said that Mexico would pay for the building of the wall.

Enrique Peña Nieto, the President of Mexico, says they will not be paying for it.

But President Trump warns the US can find a way of recouping the cost from Mexico at a later time.

Extreme vetting of people coming from predominantly Muslim countries is also expected to be one of the executive orders.

The former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox, has been highly critical of the new President’s plan to construct the wall along the border of his country with the USA.
