Trump declares national emergency over border crisis

President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency, allowing him to build his long-promised border wall without congressional approval. Trump is also expected to sign a bill granting limited funding towards the wall.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House before the signing on Friday, Trump said he will declare a national emergency, a move that will allow him to corral funding from other parts of the government to fund the US-Mexico border wall.

“We’re declaring it for virtual invasion purposes,” Trump told reporters. “Drugs, traffickers and gangs.”
