‘It Is Time for President Trump to Use Emergency Powers’ for Wall

by Joshua Caplan

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday called on President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall, citing Democrat leaders’ unwillingness to comprise on border security legislation which would reopen the federal government.

“Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened — virtually ends the congressional path to funding a border wall/barrier,” Graham’s statement reads. “It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier. I hope it works.”
