Fox Nation 'The Wall's Getting Built': Hannity on Trump's Declaration of Nat'l Emergency at Border

On Fox Nation's "Hannity On Air," Sean Hannity predicted what will happen after President Trump declares a national emergency in order to fund his long-promised border wall.
Trump is expected on Friday to sign a House border security package that provides $1.375 billion for the project, which is far below the $5.7 billion the president requested.
According to sources, Trump will also declare a national emergency, which will enable his administration to move $8 billion from various federal agencies to fund the wall project.
Hannity said that immediately after Trump declares a national emergency, a suit will be filed, likely in a district court that falls under the jurisdiction of the liberal-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
He predicted that a "liberal activist judge" will side against the Trump administration, and the decision will be upheld by the 9th Circuit, and then it will go to the Supreme Court.
Hannity said there are at least three laws specifically identifying the president's capacity to use the emergency funding, and he predicted the administration will eventually win.
"The beauty of it is, in the interim the building continues. In the interim, we now have another $1.375 billion to keep the wall, one, being renovated, and two, being built, as it is being done today," Hannity said.
"This is about life and death, safety and security of the American people. What are the Democrats arguing? They just hate Trump. ... Trust me, the wall's getting built."
