Boston Mayor Marty Walsh vowed to protect the city's undocumented immigrant population from President Donald Trump in a rousing speech Wednesday where he said he was "deeply disturbed" by the White House's new anti-immigrant stance.  Trump ordered Wednesday the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. He also said he would stop funding for sanctuary cities that do not help federal authorities detain undocumented immigrants. "The day is over when they can stay in our country and wreak havoc," Trump said, referring to undocumented immigrants. Walsh responded by calling Trump's policies destructive. Roughly 28 percent of Boston's residents are foreign born and 48 percent have at least one parent who is an immigrant.
