WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency as Congress moves to pass a government spending deal that would provide further funding for border security, the White House announced Thursday.

“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action — including a national emergency — to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Shortly after the White House’s announcement, the Senate voted 83-16 to pass the government spending deal, which would provide further funding for border security but includes no money for Trump’s border wall.
