President Donald Trump ordered the construction of the wall on the Mexican border. It turns out that US Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan didn’t like this, and left the agency.
But, some say that he was asked to leave. We’re waiting for details on this, but it’s more than clear that the President gave green light to the construction of the wall.
From The AP:
Morgan was named to the post in June and took office in October. The former FBI agent briefly led the internal affairs department at the Border Patrol’s parent agency before heading the agency of roughly 20,000 agents.Morgan leaves office only seven months after being named the first outsider to lead the agency since it was founded in 1924.
From the start, he clashed with the Border Patrol’s union, which endorsed Trump early and forcefully during the presidential campaign. The National Border Patrol Council had advocated for an insider to lead the agency and sharply criticized Morgan at almost every turn.
The President talked about this during his rallies, and now he is keeping his promises. If you remember, he promised to build this wall long before he was elected.
He signed the order, but it’s still unclear whether Mexico will pay for this wall on their border.
“This is a law enforcement agency,” Trump announced after he signed the executive order, and decided to visit the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday.“But for too long, your officers and agents haven’t been allowed to properly do their jobs.
“From here on out, I’m asking all of you to enforce the laws of the United States of America. They will be enforced and enforced strongly.”
It turns that the president of Mexico didn’t like this too, because he canceled his plan to meet President Trump.
What do you think about this wall? Will Mexico react after the order?
