Illegal immigration is up since Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump outlined his immigration policy
The White House has said President Donald Trump will declare a national emergency on the Mexican border to get funds to build a wall there. DW takes a look at why Trump made the move and whether it can succeed.
The US president is underwhelmed with a tentative funding deal that provides much less funding for border security. Trump again insisted that his concrete wall at the US-Mexico border will be built.
The US president described the situation at the Mexico border as a national security crisis that requires a wall, saying "it's a great thing to do because we have an invasion." Legal challenges have already been filed.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Senator Mitch McConnell have said President Trump will declare a national emergency at the border with Mexico. He will also support a funding bill to avert another shutdown.
