Donald Trump has taken another dramatic step to fulfill his promise to the American people. He did so by announcing yesterday that he will begin securing them by enforcing the nation’s immigration laws.

It is an indictment of the Obama presidency that such a commitment is controversial, to say nothing of shocking.

Mr. Trump will be enforcing a 10 year old statute by building what he calls a "wall" along the porous southern border of the U.S. He’ll tell border patrol officers to enforce the law by holding, rather than releasing, illegal aliens they apprehend.

And he’ll penalize — not encourage — violation of federal immigration statutes by so-called sanctuary cities.

It is refreshing — and a powerful boost to public safety and national security — that Mr. Trump is actually honoring his oath of office by upholding and defending the Constitution and the laws of the land.
