This parliamentary maneuver was the decision to engage the "nuclear option" procedure. In this procedure the Senate is able to act requiring only a simple majority of 51 votes as opposed to the super-majority of 60 votes. Gorsuch's decisions have thus far aligned most with Justice Thomas, the court's most conservative member.

"The H-2B visas are designed for non-agricultural workers for jobs in a variety of businesses, including fisheries, construction, hotels, restaurants and resorts. The Trump Organization is among the firms that use the visas, including workers at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort." Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said the temporary increase was "to provide temporary relief to American businesses at risk of significant harm due to a lack of available seasonal workers".

"The group submitted registrations for people who didn't exist or who later told detectives they never filled them out." According to testimony in the court documents, many of the applications were for individuals that were already registered except the applications were "very sloppy penmanship, missing information, and/or contained erroneous data, such as, but not limited to the following: Applicants' printed name not matching applicants' signature, missing applicants' telephone number, and applicant address not matching applicants' County of residence." "Canvassers told detectives they were pressured to collect 10 applications per shift or risk losing their jobs, according to the affidavit. Supervisors advised the canvassers, who were paid $50 to $75 a day, to meet their quotas 'by any means necessary,' the affidavit says. " It is still unclear how many false applications were submitted, and no evidence at this time suggests that the false applications led to false voting.

"During a flight aboard Air Force One Wednesday, Trump told reporters, 'One of the things with the wall is you need transparency. You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can't see through that wall...so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what's on the other side of the wall.'

The president added, 'As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them and they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It's over. As [crazy] as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs.'"

President Trump also indicated his interest in using solar panels in an attempt to offset some of the cost of construction.
