President Trump’s tweet comes as the Senate prepares to vote on a resolution to halt his national emergency declaration. The president declared a national emergency last month after Congress failed to provide the appropriate funding. It’s also important to note that the failure followed a historic 35-day government shutdown. During this shutdown, Trump offered protection extensions to DACA recipients in exchange for border wall funding and the reopening of government; Democrats shot the offer down.

Reactions to the National Emergency Declaration

The national emergency declaration followed after speculations of such. The legislation which Congress put forth on February 15th included barely a fraction of the funds needed for effective border security. Prior to the national emergency declaration, Americans speculated about the potential of yet another government shutdown.
