NewsFlash! Trump to Sign Spending Bill, Declare National Emergency14 Feb 2019
President Trump indicated today that he will sign a spending bill that funds the federal government through September 30, 2019, despite the fact that it does not include the funding he demanded to build a wall on the U.S. / Mexico border. The bill will also extend several immigration programs for the same period, including the employment-based, fifth preference (EB5) regional center program and the employment-based, fourth preference (EB4) non-minister religious worker program.
President Trump also revealed that he will declare a national emergency in order to use federal money to build the border wall without Congressional authorization. This use of emergency powers by the President will almost certainly be challenged in federal court.
