President Trump will take dramatic actions to fund his long-promised border wall and declare a national emergency, which will enable his administration to move $8 billion from various federal agencies to fund the project, a senior administration official told Fox News late Thursday.
The news comes as Trump is expected to sign a House border security package that provides $1.4 billion for the project, which is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed and would finance just a quarter of the 200-plus miles he wanted.
Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said earlier today that Trump will sign the spending bill and declare a national emergency at the same time tomorrow morning.
The White House said hed sign the legislation but act unilaterally to get more, prompting condemnations from Democrats and threats of lawsuits from states and others who might lose federal money or said Trump was abusing his authority.

I knew it. Screw Congress. Trump will fight these SOBs and build the wall. He needs to blitz it.
Why only $8 billion?
With the bill he’ll sign tomorrow, why waste money on a wall?
Maybe he got a better deal.
Please delete. I f’d it all up. Please think “melting Nazi faces”
Maybe Ann Colter will shut her pie hole now

Bill Maher will testify that something else goes in there as well
You just left out a few <> see here http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3597471/posts
why sign the bill? why sign all the crap in it that allows illegals to keep coming and abusing our system and harming US Citizens and the country?
Shut up, Dummy.
Is that your very best comeback?
Guatamalamerica here we come!
I saw the details in the spending bill on line forget where but it is a disaster. It provides billions to assist migrants and illegals crossing the border. It limits funds to ICE so ICE agents will be unable to prosecute illegals already in-country. It is a horror. It’s a huge poison pill. You are correct. With all of that in the bill what sense does a wall make?
What’s the point anymore? With this spending bill, it gives amnesty and makes it easier to get in without even needing to jump the border.
Now, it’s just theater. The invasion is still happening. Nothing is stopping it...wall or not.
You can vote along with all others posting here on FR tonight for someone other than Trump in 2020.
I’m voting Trump in 2020.
