There are some who have not taken President-elect Donald Trump’s promise of a border wall seriously, who thought that it was more about winning the primary and the election.

But they may be confounded, as it looks like he’s off to the races on it, even before he assumes office.

He appears to be taking the first steps already.

From Weasel Zippers via Reuters:

In a wide-ranging request for documents and analysis, President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team asked the Department of Homeland Security last month to assess all assets available for border wall and barrier construction.

The team also asked about the department’s capacity for expanding immigrant detention and about an aerial surveillance program that was scaled back by the Obama administration but remains popular with immigration hardliners. And it asked whether federal workers have altered biographic information kept by the department about immigrants out of concern for their civil liberties.

The requests were made in a Dec. 5 meeting between Trump’s transition team and Department of Homeland Security officials, according to an internal agency memo reviewed by Reuters. The document offers a glimpse into the president-elect’s strategy for securing the U.S. borders and reversing polices put in place by the Obama administration.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection identified 400 miles along the southern border that could use new fencing to the Trump transition team.

There used to be 6000 airmen involved in an aerial surveillance program monitoring the border but President Barack Obama gutted it down to 1200 men. The transition team asked about that as well, likely looking to see if they can reinstate it.

According to Reuters:

The transition team also asked for copies of every executive order and directive sent to immigration agents since Obama took office in 2009, according to the memo summarizing the meeting.

This is perhaps the best indication out of the meeting.

Looks like they intend to walk through every Obama executive order, presumably to get rid of them, which is exactly what they should be doing.

Very positive!
