Trump Declares National Emergency To Fund U.S.-Mexico Border Wall – AOL News

President Donald Trump said Friday he will declare a national emergency at the southern U.S. border in an effort to unilaterally seize funding to begin building his long-promised wall between the U.S. and Mexico.Trump is expected to approve Congress’ spending bill, which grants him $1.375 billion for the wall, as opposed to the $5.7 billion he initially demanded. The national emergency declaration gives Trump a chance to reroute other government money to fund the project ― but also sets up a legal battle that could tie up the president’s signature project for months or years.
