Lawmakers argue over Trump's nat'l emergency declaration

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) On CBS 'Face the Nation', Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said he supported President Trump's national emergency declaration to build the wall while Republican Texas Congressman Will Hurd and Democratic Senator Chris Coons said it was not necessary.

"There's going to be over one thousand ranchers and farmers potentially impacted if the government comes in and takes their land," Rep.

Hurd said on Sunday.

Trump invoked the emergency powers on Friday under a 1976 law after Congress rebuffed his request for $5.7 billion to help build the wall that was a signature 2016 campaign promise.

The move is intended to allow him to redirect money appropriated by Congress for other purposes to wall construction.

The White House says Trump will have access to about $8 billion.

Nearly $1.4 billion was allocated for border fencing under a spending measure approved by Congress last week, and Trump's emergency declaration is aimed at giving him another $6.7 billion for the wall.
