The White House confirmed Thursday the President will sign a bipartisan funding agreement and subsequently declare a national emergency along the United States’ southern border with Mexico.
“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,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
