Border wall construction to start 'soon'

dpa logodpa 1/03/2017

Construction on the promised wall along the US-Mexico border will begin soon, President Donald Trump has told Congress.

US President Donald Trump says his planned wall along the Mexican border will be "a very effective weapon against drugs and crime".

In his first speech to a joint session of Congress, he described an "environment of lawless chaos" and called for a restoration of "integrity and the rule of law" at US borders.

"For that reason, we will soon begin the construction of a great wall along our southern border," Trump said on Tuesday night.
