WASHINGTON, DC –
President Donald Trump will extend the national emergency along the Mexico border for another year.
According to a notice that was submitted to the Federal Registrar Thursday, Trump’s addiction to the Mexican border will continue. If you recall, he began declared the national emergency along the border in order to garner funds to build his border wall.
Though many find it unconstitutional, with a national emergency declared Trump has access to funds allocated for emergencies. Those funds are being used to build his wall.
The extension of the national emergency allows Trump to use those funds and continue building the wall. You can’t help but wonder how long this “emergency” can be dragged out. However, the notice submitted to the registrar claims that “further action is needed to address the humanitarian crisis and to control unlawful migration and the flow of narcotics and criminals across the southern border of the United States.”
During Trump’s State of the Union address, he shared plans of completion. Officials expect to have over 500 miles of border wall completed by 2021. The wall is currently about 119 miles long and replaces an older wall.
