WASHINGTON, D.C. – The White House said today that President Trump will sign a government funding bill passed by Congress to avert another shutdown and he will also take other executive action—including a national emergency—to stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border.

Following this declaration, Iowa’s 4th District Representative in Congress, Steve King, released a statement:

“I have been asking the President to declare a National Emergency to address border security for months, and I support his doing so today. President Trump is on solid Constitutional ground, and I hope he uses this authority to build all of the wall that’s needed, which means extending it until illegal aliens stop going around the end. Americans understand that if a 2,000 mile wall facilitated illegal immigration, Democrats would be clamoring for a National Emergency of their own to build it.

In fact, the government shutdown allowed the President to show the American public that the Democrats just cannot be trusted to place the security interests of the American public over Democrats’ political interests in an open borders agenda which places the desires of illegal aliens above the needs and wishes of the American people. The conference report that was produced in the wake of the shutdown is woefully insufficient to begin to address our border security needs, just as the Democrats who helped draft it wanted and ensured.”

    As much as we need this wall, abusing executive powers is not the way to go about it, and this is going to come back to haunt us.
