Also, POTUS declaring a national emergency would anger and divide Republicans, a political plus for Dems. That, together with the fact that there is zero reason for Dems to agree to “wall” money after winning last round, makes me think is by far most likely outcome on 2-15. https://t.co/rfYaUrtJI4

Have to believe a presidential “emergency declaration” is easily the most likely outcome Feb 15. Once POTUS put that on the table the motivation for real negotiating on an obviously difficult - if not impossible - issue goes away. Congress usually takes path of least resistance
