Trump to Declare National Emergency

Trump to Declare National Emergency

But she said if Mr Trump invokes an emergency declaration it should be met with "great unease and dismay" as an overreach of executive authority.

Velázquez, who was born and raised in Puerto Rico, is concerned that Trump may use the national emergency declaration to take money from the relief effort to help the USA territory with its recovery from the 2017 hurricanes that ravaged the island.

President Donald Trump will declare a national emergency so he can bypass Congress and get the money to build a wall along the border with Mexico. Instead, the president plans to declare a national emergency and use defense spending to build the wall.

"Fixing our broken immigration system is the true, long-term solution to border protection, economic security and a humane, compassionate response to people seeking safety and a better life for themselves and their families in America", he said. Rather than suffer defeat, Bush withdrew it one day before the vote, NPR reports. The House is expected to vote on the spending plan on Thursday evening.

The administration has been eyeing several pots of money - including disaster funds, counter-narcotic accounts and military construction dollars - to fund the wall, according to congressional aides and White House officials.

The bipartisan legislation provides more than $300 billion to fund the Department of Homeland Security and a range of other federal agencies through September 30, the end of the current fiscal year.

President Donald Trump is set to declare a national emergency to receive funding for his proposed border wall on the U.S. -Mexico border - which would make it the 32nd national emergency that's now in place.

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said earlier he was praying that Mr Trump would sign the border security deal into law to prevent a government shutdown.

Trump's declaration is expected to be challenged in court, and Pelosi acknowledged that "that's an option".

"When the president invents an emergency in order to fund a project that Congress has explicitly declined to fund, that's an effort to undermine the constitutional allocation of powers", she wrote in the post, which was updated January 31.

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus - who railed against President Obama's use of executive action - also urged the president to use executive action in a letter Thursday. The first shutdown over border security was the longest in history, stretching 35 days. Here, Congress has refused to pay for Trump's border wall, and now it appears that Trump is trying to usurp the appropriations power.

Among the laws Trump could turn to is Section 2808 of Title 10 of the U.S. Code pertaining to military construction.

"I think it's ridiculous", Sen.

Funding is due to expire for a range of federal agencies on Friday.

The border bill passed by Congress Thursday night would provide $1.37 billion in new money to help build 55 miles (88.5 km) of new physical barriers on the border. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday the House of Representatives might sue, and some Democratic state attorneys general said their states would, too.

"When the President invents an emergency in order to fund a project that Congress has very explicitly declined to fund, that's an effort to undermine the constitutional allocation of powers", she said in a question-and-answer on the Brennan Center's website.

She and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer also issued a strongly worded joint statement condemning the move. He had also indicated declaring a national emergency to get the barricade built "at any cost".
