The White House has begun laying the groundwork for a declaration of national emergency to build President Trump’s border wall, a move certain to set off a firestorm of opposition in Congress and the courts but one that could pave the way for an end to the three-week government shutdown.
"Trump Administration Lays Groundwork to Declare National Emergency to Build Wall" is from the January 10, 2019 Politics section of The Washington Post. It was written by Erica Werner, Josh Dawsey, Mike DeBonis and Seung Min Kim and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
