Trump Prepares National Emergency Declaration As Pelosi Rejects Another Shutdown Compromise

President Trump is reportedly preparing a proclamation to declare a national emergency at the southern border, freeing up to $7 billion in potential funds to build a wall.

“The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency,” a draft version reads.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the President “could yet declare a national emergency to pay for his border wall,” but he seems hesitant to do so. Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney believes Trump has the authority but doesn’t really want to open a Pandora’s box.
