On February 15, President Trump declared a state of national emergency and directed $8 billion towards building the southern border wall. This declaration came after President Trump was unable to get the $5.7 billion he previously requested for the project. 

"We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border and we’re going to do it one way or the other... It’s an invasion... We have an invasion of drugs and criminals coming into our country," he said speaking from the Rose Garden.

Politicians and citizens alike took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the 2019 national emergency declaration. Like with responses to President Trump's Oval Office address, the reactions were intense, no matter which side of the political aisle these folks sit on.
