Trump to declare 'emergency' over Mexico border wall
2019-02-15 10:34:50

US President Donald Trump is to declare a national emergency to fund his planned border wall with Mexico, the White House has said.

He will sign a border security bill to avert a government shutdown - but also act to bypass Congress and use military funds for the wall, a statement said.

Senior Democrats have responded by accusing him of committing a "gross abuse of power" and a "lawless act".

Building the wall was a key election promise by Mr Trump.
