President Donald Trump has issued an executive order for a wall to be built along the southern US border with Mexico, the BBC has reported.
Mr Trump also signed an action to strip funds from US cities that are sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants.
He said in a TV interview that Mexico would “absolutely, 100%” reimburse the US for his wall.
Building a 2,000-mile barrier along the Mexican border was one of his key pledges in the election campaign.
“We’ve been talking about this right from the beginning,” he said as he signed the actions during a ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday.
