The current temporary funding package to keep the government operating expires February 15.

"To me, this is within the power of every commander in chief", the South Carolina Republican said.

"A resolution of disapproval is likely should the President goes down this path, but no decisions have been made nor can be made until we see what the President does and how he does it", the aide said.

Those who are against Trump using his emergency powers include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who told the president it could result in Congress voting to disapprove of his declaration, The Washington Post reported. It's that alternative. It's national emergency, it's other things and you know there have been plenty national emergencies called. Sixty-five percent of Democrats want their party to continue negotiating with the government open, the poll found.

'This really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers.

"We're in a very strong legal standing - we are doing it regardless".

House and Senate negotiators over the last few days have moved closer to ironing out their differences on measures in the spending legislation that are not tied to border security and barriers sought by Trump, the sources said.

Rep. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., emphasized Sunday on the Fox News Channel he has no doubt that there's a "crisis" on the border in need of immediate attention. "And anybody that says you don't, they're just playing games".

Pelosi held firm on her stance for no border wall funding and, after the longest shutdown in American history, Trump caved and reopened the government for three weeks while negotiations on border security funding continue.

"We need to build the wall. When [President Harry] Truman attempted to [declare an emergency] during the Korean War, the Supreme Court said 'you can't spend money unless Congress has authorized it'".

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., also said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that Trump shouldn't invoke executive authority to get border-wall funding.

On CBS, Trump accused his political rival of being "very bad for our country".

'I think that she was very rigid - which I would expect - but I think she is very bad for our country, ' he told CBS News of the speaker.

"This really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers, these are people that are awful people, bringing in women mostly, but bringing in women and children, into our country, human trafficking and we're gonna have a strong border, and the only way you have a strong border is you need a physical barrier, you need a wall", he stated.
