President Donald Trump will be announcing executive orders on border security Wednesday, including that which would begin construction on the border wall with Mexico.
He seemed to confirm the report via his official Twitter account:
Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1485311868.0
Administration officials told the Associated Press Tuesday that he will sign the orders while at the Homeland Security offices.
Robert Costa of the Washington Post reported that Trump will personally oversee the construction.

Trump will also be issuing other executive orders on immigration the rest of the week, including one expected to begin controversial restrictions on immigrants and refugees from Muslim countries.
While he had criticized Obama's use of executive orders to circumvent Congress, Trump immediately signed orders as soon as he got into the Oval Office to begin undoing Obamacare, and freeze federal hiring. Earlier Tuesday Trump also signed two executive orders to restart two major oil pipeline projects.
