It is more likely than ever that President Trump will declare a national emergency at the border — and that’s just fine with some of his most fervent supporters.
Stephen Bannon, the president’s former chief strategist, told The Hill that Trump “wins politically and practically — he uses his powers as a ‘forcing function’” if he makes an emergency declaration.
But such a move would set off a firestorm of criticism from Democrats, and legal challenges would be all but guaranteed.
Critics argue Trump would be overstepping his powers in an effort to circumvent Congress. They also condemn his rigidity in demanding funds for a southern border wall as the price for reopening the government.
