At 10 a.m. Friday morning, President Trump will announce that he is declaring a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, allowing him to spend up to $8 billion to build a border barrier to keep foreigners from illegally entering the country.

While Democrats are expected to fight the move — and likely will seek to halt the plan via court action — Trump will declare that as president, he has the authority to redirect federal funds in order to stem a crisis.

The money Trump plans to use for his border barrier, which he has been promising since his campaign days, include $1.375 billion that is included in a spending bill he will sign in the Rose Garden ceremony, $600 million from the Treasury Department’s drug Forfeiture Fund, money seized by the U.S. government, $2.5 billion from a Defense Department drug interdiction program, and $3.5 billion from a military construction budget, NBC News reports.

The White House on Thursday confirmed that the president will sign an emergency order allowing him to make the move. “President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action — including a national emergency — to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border. The President is once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the move an “end-run around the will of the people,” adding,”We will review our options, we’ll be prepared to respond appropriately to it.”

“It’s important to note that when President Trump declares this emergency, first of all, it’s not an emergency,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. “The precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.”

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday he is “going to support the national emergency declaration,” although Congress has no say in the matter anyway.

The president has the authority under the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to declare emergencies if he deems that the country is “threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances’ other than wars or natural disasters, a 2007 report from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) explains,” Fox News reported. “Some of those provisions include the ability to seize commodities or property; control production, transportation and communication; institute martial law or restrict travel, according to the report.”

Democrats immediately sought to discredit Trump calling for a national emergency by suggesting that there is no “emergency” on the border, despite the hundreds of thousands of people who are apprehended every year illegally trying to enter the U.S. on the southern border.
