"Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures", he said. "And I'm taking it price per square foot and a price per square, you know, per mile", he said.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, called the order a "band-aid" on immigration reform.

Workers continue work raising a taller fence in the Mexico-US border separating the towns of Anapra, Mexico and Sunland Park, New Mexico, with funding from a 2006 law.

According to U.S. Government Accountability Office data cited by Bernstein, building the "easiest" sections of the existing 653 miles of fencing ran between $2.8 million and $3.9 million per mile as part of the $7 billion that's been spent since 2001.

"As soon as we can, as soon as we can physically do it", he said in response to a question about when construction would begin.

Mexico's ex-president Vicente Fox Quesada has also been a vocal adversary of Trump's wall proposal, posting several blunt Tweets to show his disdain.

He said the second executive order is on "public safety for the interior of the United States".

Trump's order specifically says cities risk losing funding only if they violate a statute prohibiting local officials from exchanging information with immigration officials, which Detroit does not appear to do.

During his campaign, Trump repeatedly said Mexico's government would pay for the wall - a proposition Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has flatly rejected. President Trump's plan to immediately secure our U.S. -Mexico border is the first incremental step in improving our immigration system and protecting our homeland.

Liddell met his new boss at a meeting with USA auto makers at the White House.

Later this week, Trump is expected to further please his conservative base on immigration by paring down a program that helps people from vulnerable countries receive refuse in the United States and beefing up screening methods.

But Democrats were already pledging to fight back against a number of aspects of the executive orders - or even ignore them altogether.

The orders will bring an end to the current catch-and-release policy, forcing other nations to take back their citizens.

"You will never be ignored again", Trump told them.

Sources outside the government familiar with the Trump team proposals say they expect any presidential action will not impact young immigrants now benefiting from former President Barack Obama's initiative known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which provides temporary legal protection and work permits, ABC News said.

These orders are hardly the last we'll see of the White House's rapidly devolving stance on immigration.
