On Wednesday Jan. 25, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order to authorize the construction of a wall along the southern border of the US, and he also demanded punishment for cities shielding illegal immigrants and said he was mulling restoring a CIA secret detention programme.

Later on, during a press conference Trump stated that the relationship with Mexico is going to be strenghened; that there will be ‘close coordination’ as well as more attractive economic opportunities on both sides of the border and that a strong and solid Mexican economy is convenient for the United States.

He also said that both governments will collaborate together to stop weapons to pass from the US to Mexico; stop drug trafficking from Mexico to the US, and dismantle the drug cartels.

But, on Thursday January 26, at 8:00 am eastern time, Donald Trump tweeted:

The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting.

So far, the Peña Nieto administration has not confirmed if the Mexican President is still on to meet with Trump on Tuesday January 31.

In taking his first step towards building a US-Mexico border wall, US President Donald Trump begins an attack on a vanishing issue. Yesterday, Trump signed an executive order to direct federal resources to build a wall intended to staunch the flow of Mexican immigrants entering the US illegally.

In reality, undocumented immigration from Mexico to the US is less of an issue that it has been in over 40 years. And more recently, due to a growing Mexican economy, the number of people attempting to cross the US-Mexico border fell precipitously over the last 15 years. Since 2007, the total number of Mexican immigrants in the US has actually been on the decline.
