Donald Trump will make a brief visit to Mexico today ahead of a highly anticipated immigration speech this evening. The speech in Arizona is expected to clear up confusion over whether he will soften his stance on the issue.
The wall he has promised to build at the U.S. southern border is still in the works, but the details have gotten muddier in the past few months. When Trump first started talking about building that wall, he said it would stretch from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean. But since then, he’s said portions might need to be a “virtual wall.”
