Emergency Declaration For Border Wall Could Tap Military Funds

  • Emergency Declaration For Border Wall Could Tap Military Funds

The House is scheduled to vote later in the evening.

Under the National Emergencies Act, the president can declare a national emergency, providing a specific reason for it.

"He has indicated he is prepared to sign the bill".

Freedom Caucus members in the House of Representative wrote a letter to President Trump urging him to use his executive authority to build a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.

The Democrats vowed that Congress would "defend our constitutional authorities".

But tapping money meant for building military housing or improving safety on bases could be problematic.

Other Democrats also condemned Trump's plan with posts on social media, including 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris and California Rep. Adam Schiff.

His authority to do so will nearly certainly be challenged in court.

Mr. Trump's declaration will be governed by the National Emergencies Act. That sentiment weakened Trump's hand and fueled the bipartisan deal, a pact that contrasts with the parties' still-raging differences over health care, taxes and investigations of the president. "This legislation represents a bipartisan compromise and will keep our government open while funding key priorities", Lowey said.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told reporters there were two hours of phone calls between McConnell and the White House before there were assurances that Trump would sign. "He will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time", the majority leader declared from the Senate floor.

It's scary to think about, but President Trump has far-flung powers to declare a national emergency for nearly anything he wants.

Graham noted that the deal negotiated between Republicans and Democrats will get the president closer to the $5 billion he requested but he thinks Trump should use his executive powers to secure the remaining funding.

He would be able to divert money from existing military or disaster relief budgets to pay for the wall. Now comes the mini-bombshell that the president plans to follow through with his national emergency - a ploy McConnell had advised him against doing. "It's a humanitarian challenge to us", Pelosi said.

The Defense Department has declined to provide any details on the amount of money available.

The compromise would also squeeze funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, in an attempt to pressure the agency to gradually detain fewer immigrants. To the dismay of Democrats, however, it would still leave an agency many of them consider abusive holding thousands more immigrants than past year.

House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., pointed to new spending on humanitarian aid at the border and increased border technology as victories in the bill.

The legislation would provide more than $US300 billion to fund the Department of Homeland Security and a range of other agencies through September 30.

For weeks, as the president's wall-funding demand to Congress went nowhere, even after a historic 35-day partial government shutdown, the White House explored whether an emergency declaration could be invoked to redirect taxpayer funds committed by Congress for other purposes toward the wall.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers reacted to McConnell's announcement with alarm.
