About "Border Negotiations"
Following an inability to pass a budget due to disagreements regarding funding for Trump’s border wall, the government shut down in December. At the end of January, President Trump allowed the government to reopen for a three-week period but threatened the shut down the government again at the end of it if funding was not allocated. Congressional approval for funding for the wall seems unlikely.
One potential outcome if congress refuses to support the wall would be a state of emergency, which President Trump could declare for border security. If a national emergency is declared, the President could force his wall through, regardless of congressional approval. Last Friday, President Trump stated he would likely declare a state of emergency for human trafficking along the border. While he has yet to do so, many are wondering as to whether he will do so before the shutdown is forced to resume.
