来源:慢速英语   时间:2017-01-26 09:42:17

President Donald Trump ordered the construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to act on his campaign promise of stronger immigration enforcement.

川普下令沿美国和墨西哥边境修建隔离墙,以践行他在竞选期间加强移民执法的承诺。

The president signed executive orders to make federal funds available to build the wall during his Wednesday visit at the Department of Homeland Security.

川普周三在访问国土安全部期间签署了行政命令为修建隔离墙提供联邦资金。

Trump also ordered the hiring of 10,000 immigration officers and 5,000 Border Patrol agents. He ordered the end of a policy in which some people are picked up after crossing the border illegally, and then released.

川普还下令雇佣1万名移民官员和5千名边境巡逻人员。有些人在非法越境后被抓住然后又被释放,川普下令终止了这项政策。

The president also directed his secretary of Homeland Security to start the process of cutting federal money to cities that refuse to turn over undocumented immigrants. The cities have called themselves “sanctuary cities.”

川普还指示国土安全部部长开始削减那些拒绝遣返非法移民的城市的联邦拨款。这些城市称自己是“庇护城市”。

He said countries will take “their criminals back," although he did not say how he would force them to do so. His order also calls for building more detention facilities for illegal immigrants.

他说,各国将会把他们的“罪犯”带回去,虽然他没有说明将会如何强迫这些国家这样做。他的命令还要求修建更多的非法移民拘留场所。

‘Get the bad ones out’

赶走坏人

“We are going to get the bad ones out -- the criminals, the drug dealers and gangs and gang members and cartel leaders,” Trump said. “The day is over when they can stay in our country and wreak havoc.”

川普说:“我们将会把坏人赶出去,包括罪犯、毒贩、帮派和帮派成员,以及卡特尔领导人。他们呆在美国搞破坏的好日子已经到头了。”

From the day he first announced his candidacy for president in June 2015, Trump promised to enforce immigration laws and build a big wall along America’s southern border.

从2015年6月他首次宣布竞选总统开始,川普就承诺执行移民法,并在美国南部边境修建一堵高墙。

"I will build a great, great wall on our southern border,” he said in announcing his candidacy. “And I will have Mexico pay for that wall."

Cost estimates for the wall range from $10 billion to $20 billion.

修建这堵高墙的费用预计在一两百亿美元之间。

In an interview with ABC News, Trump said planning for the wall will start immediately and construction can start in a matter of months. The U.S. will pick up the costs, he said. But Trump said Mexico will repay the United States for the cost of the wall.

川普在接受ABC新闻采访时表示,美国将会立即开始建墙规划,并预计在几个月内开始施工。他说,美国将会负担费用。但是川普表示,墨西哥将会偿付美国的造墙费用。

“There will be a payment, it will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form," Trump told ABC. He said negotiations would begin soon.

川普对ABC新闻表示,“有人会以某种形式付款,可能会是一种非常复杂的形式。”他称谈判即将开启。

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has said Mexico will not pay for the wall. He plans to meet with Trump at the White House next week.

墨西哥总统恩里克·佩尼亚·尼托(Enrique Peña Nieto)表示,墨西哥不会承担造墙的费用。他计划下周在白宫和川普会谈。

Trump said he will also take steps to stop people from bringing guns from the United States into Mexico. "We're going to save lives on both sides of the border,” he said.

川普表示,他将采取措施阻止人们将枪带到墨西哥。他说,“我们要拯救两国人民的性命。”

Limiting entry from some countries

禁止部分国家入境

Trump is also expected to take action within days to limit who can enter the United States as refugees. He has been considering a four-month freeze on refugee admissions. And he wants to stop the entry of refugees from Muslim-majority countries for at least 30 days.

川普还预计将会在几天内采取行动限制难民入境。他一直考虑将难民入境冻结四个月。他还希望至少维持30天阻止穆斯林国家难民入境。

Groups that work with immigrant communities criticized the president’s enforcement plan.

与移民社区合作的团体批评了川普的执行方案。

Lynn Tramonte is deputy director of America’s Voice Education Fund. “There’s no way around it: Trump is declaring open season on immigrants, refugees, Latino families, and other people of color in America.”

Lynn Tramonte是美国语音教育基金的副主任。他说,“无法回避的是:川普宣称对移民、难民、拉丁美洲家庭和其它美国有色人种开放讨论。”

Greg Chen is director of Advocacy for the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He said Trump’s plan could put an end or cause a big reduction in America’s role as a safe place for people threatened by violence and repression.

Greg Chen是美国移民律师协会的倡导主任。他说,美国是受暴力和镇压者的安全场所,川普的计划将会终止或大幅削弱美国的这一作用。
