Reuters exclusively reports Trump team seeks agency records on border barriers, surveillance

Reuters exclusively reported that 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. The requests offer a glimpse into the president-elect’s strategy for securing the U.S. borders and reversing polices put in place by the Obama administration.
