We’re about two weeks into the presidency of Donald Trump. And like President Obama before him, President Trump used the first days of his presidency to sign several directives — some of them were Executive Orders, others were Presidential Memoranda.

A few of those directives could have especially big implications along the Texas-Mexico border — specifically those related to border wall construction, a potential increase in Border Patrol Agents, and pipeline construction.
