Conservative leaders seem to be in support of the controversial move–including Mitch McConnell who previously opposed an emergency declaration.
Mark Meadows, the Freedom Caucus Chair tweeted:
Democrats’ refusal to negotiate has rendered Congress inept at doing its job to protect Americans. At this point POTUS is absolutely right to use constitutional executive action authority to build the wall and secure our border. This is a national emergency. I fully support him.

But liberals immediately took to twitter to complain about President Trump doing anything to solve the border crisis:
The greatest national emergency is the one that sits inside the Oval Office.

Imagine thinking you not getting your way is a national emergency

Someone explain to me how a President is allowed to declare a national emergency that he’s entirely made up?
