The White House is preparing to declare a state of emergency in the United States amid the border wall with Mexico, the Washington Post reported. 

The administration is eyeing unused money in the Army Corps of Engineers budget that includes $13.9 billion allocated but not spent for civil works projects.

The national emergency will allow President Trump to break the political deadlock following the shutdown. The president announced the shutdown after the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives of Congress refused to allocate $ 5.7 billion to build a wall on the southern border.
