Border town immigrants express concerns over the future

NACO, ARIZONA — President Donald Trump had a meeting Friday with Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto at the G-20 summit in Germany. But the issue of building a border wall between the US and Mexico was not discussed.
Prior to their bilateral talk, Trump told reporters he absolutely still wants Mexico to pay for his desired barrier, despite Pena Nieto’s repeated refusals to fund it.
But while this controversial project is being resolved, undocumented immigrants living in border towns like Naco, Arizona are getting more concerned about their future.
As undocumented Filipinos and other immigrants in similar situations wait for the Trump administration’s next move on the border wall, all they could do is keep hoping that the President would give him and the rest of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. the chance to live in peace in this country they now call home.
