    On 15 February, US President Donald Trump signed a national emergency declaration to free up $8 billion in US federal funds to install 234 miles’ worth of steel barriers along the country’s 1,950-mile border with Mexico.

    Demonstrators are gathering in Washington DC to protest US President Donald Trump's decision to declare a national emergency to initiate the building of a wall along the border with Mexico. 

    The decision has already been challenged by the state of California, and it is expected to file a lawsuit against President Donald Trump's administration over his decision to declare a national emergency to build a wall along the border, according to state Governor Gavin Newsom.
