Reaction from Democrats
After President Trump declared an emergency in the country, the Democratic Party's prominent names reacted to the verdict.

"The fact that the president imposes a crisis that does not exist illegally is a serious violation of our constitution and makes our country more insecure," he said at the given statement.
At the press conference Trump said," There are terrible drugs entering in our country, most of them are coming from the southern frontier, so we've arrested too many people on the southern frontier. The national emergency has been announced many times before for a much simpler reason. No one has ever made a noise we're talking about the invasion of our country "
