Donald Trump has declared a national emergency to get extra funding to build a wall along the border with Mexico.
The US president made the statement in a speech on border security which he describes as a “national security crisis”.
Mr Trump says the move would allow him to fund a proposed border wall without Congress approval.
Democrats have vowed to challenge the move as unconstitutional.
