According to Harvard professor John Yoo, Trump has the power to declare an emergency at the border, especially because Congress in 2006 passed a law approved by Democrats and Republicans authorizing the construction of a wall. The border wall has been a heavily disputed topic during the President's first two years in office, culminating with Congress not allocating the funds the President requested.

Trump had originally sought $5.7 billion for enhanced border barriers and "the wall".
Miller flatly rejected suggestions that Trump's national emergency decree was unconstitutional, even after Wallace read out Article 1, Section 9, Clause 7 of the Constitution, which reads in part: "No money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in effect of appropriations made by law".
"The invocation of emergency powers and exercise of those powers, and the diversion of funds to build a wall, are thus contrary to law", the petition continues.
Trump said during a press conference announcing the national emergency that he knew he would be sued.
