Donald Trump has declared a State of Emergency to get money to build his wall. The U.S. may have some state emergencies that need to be taken care of, but how do we feel about this new wall. Is it really an emergency? Did we really need a government shutdown?

Freshman Reese Hernandez commented, “I don’t think that building a wall is anything of an emergency. If the government shutdown was to save money to build the wall, it wasn’t really important. The money should go to the homeless, abused humans or animals.”

This is something that lots of people do not know about the recent shutdown. Lots of people have their own opinion on this situation, like freshman Angel Montes. Montes stated, “It’s terrible that Trump is taking money that should have gone to government workers, and he’s just going to use it for a project pretty much no one wants. The democrats have tried to stop it with laws but Trump keeps denying or using a veto against it.”

The president will be given 1.375 billion dollars that will be put towards building the new wall. Trumps goal is to get a little more than 5 billion dollars in order to build his wall. This information was given out by the US Today news by Eliza Collins and John Fritze.
