Trump to Declare National Emergency as Senate Passes Spending Package

Trump to Declare National Emergency and Sign Spending Bill The Senate voted 82-16 to pass the 1,159-page bill, averting another government shutdown.

It includes $1.375 billion for 55 miles of steel-post fencing along the U.S. southern border.

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders announced that President Donald Trump "will also take other executive action - including a national emergency โ€” to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border." Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, indicated that he will support the national emergency declaration.

By declaring a national emergency on border security, Trump essentially bypasses Congress to divert the amount of funding he seeks to build a wall on the U.S./Mexico border.

The president is seeking $5.7 billion to create a steel or concrete wall to run more than 200 miles.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, referred to Trump's expected declaration as "an end run around Congress." She said Democrats were "reviewing" options to respond, including a legal challenge.
