In a tweet Saturday, the president said Border Patrol, and law enforcement officials have apprehended large numbers of illegal immigrants at the border. He applauded their efforts saying “they won’t be coming into the U.S.”

The president went on to say “the wall is being built and will greatly help us in the future and now.”

This as Democrats in the Senate attempt to drum up support to block the president’s national emergency declaration.

President Trump has said he will veto any legislative attempt to block his declaration.
