President Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency so he can bypass Congress and get the money to build a wall along the border with Mexico.

The House and Senate passed the border security bill late Thursday, funding the government and avoiding another shutdown. Trump has until midnight Friday to sign the bill, and will then likely declare a national emergency.

The bill gives him only $1.3 billion for a barrier along just 90 kilometers of the border, much less than the $5.7 billion he wanted.

Declaring a national emergency gives Trump the authority to move money from elsewhere in the federal budget and use it for a wall.

If the president does declare an emergency, Democrats and others are sure to challenge him in court, which could delay construction for years.

“Declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act, a gross abuse of the power of the presidency, and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that President Trump broke his promise to have Mexico pay for his wall,” Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement.
