Trump Declares National Emergency to Fund Border Wall

Trump Declares National Emergency to Fund Border Wall Legislation passed by Congress allotted $1.3 billion for border wall construction and prevented a second shutdown of the federal government.

The spending bill passed 82-16 in the Senate but fell $4.4 billion short of Trump’s demanded $5.7 billion.

Trump has invoked his executive power to sidestep Congress and reallocate $8 billion for the 234 mile wall.

He faces significant opposition from both political parties, with Democrats threatening possible legal action.
