Graham Calls For Trump To Declare Wall “Emergency”

The Hill reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday said President Trump should declare a national emergency so he could build the U.S.-Mexico border wall after last-ditch negotiations in the Senate fell apart.

“It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier. I hope it works,” Graham said in a statement.

Graham’s decision to throw his support behind the president declaring migration at the southern border a national emergency follows remarks earlier this week when he told reporters that it should be the “last resort” and is not the “preferred route.”
