“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,” reads the draft order.

CNN also reported that the administration is looking at various alternate sources for funding the border wall, which add up to more than $7 billion. He had asked Congress for $5.7 billion for his border wall, but has so far been rebuffed.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Democrats would not sign on to any deal that included funding for Trump’s border wall.

President Donald Trump is planning to declare a national emergency at the border and use the powers from such a declaration to order the construction of a border wall, according to a draft of the order published by CNN.

“Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C 1601, et seq.), hereby declare that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States,” the draft says.

On Thursday, President Trump offered to sign a continuing resolution on the budget to end the shutdown as long as it included a “down payment” on the border wall.

He also went on to hint around at the idea of declaring a national emergency, stating he has “other alternatives” and will “use those alternatives if I have to.”

It’s time to bring this whole silly shutdown to an end, and the best way to accomplish that is for the left to go ahead and sign on to funding the wall.
