Oh man does he sign it and reshuffle money from another area or shut it down?

He refuses to sign, declares his emergency, and winds up in court. 

 

And no wall.

4 ways Trump could use executive authority to fund the border wall

From CNN's politics team

President Trump is continuing to weigh his options after congressional negotiators presented an agreement with only $1.375 billion in border barrier funds.

White House officials have a roster of options they have been weighing that would employ the President's executive authority to secure money for a border wall. Not all would require declaring a national emergency.

Those options include...

Accessing Treasury forfeiture funds 

  • How much money? About $680 million
  • National emergency? This option would not require the President to declare a national emergency.
  • How would it work? After the Office of Management and Budget reviews the order, Treasury and DHS would both notify Congress then wait 15 days before the funds can be obligated. Acquisition of land is allowed under this option.

Using USC 284 to divert some Pentagon funds for counter-narcotics 

  • How much money? An estimated $700 million
  • National emergency? It may not require the President to declare a national emergency, according to a Congressional Research Service legal report.
  • How would it work? The Department of Homeland Security must exercise a waiver to transfer counter-drug funds to construct fencing to block drug smuggling. DHS would also ask the Department of Defense to assist after identifying a location where a fence is needed to block drug smuggling corridor.

Using USC 2808 to gain access to military construction funds 

  • How much money? About $3.6 billion
  • National emergency? This option would require the President to declare a national emergency. It would also require the use of the military.
  • How would it work? The President would declare border protection a Department of Defense mission.

 Using Army Corps civil works funds under USC 2293 

  • How much money? An estimated $3 billion.
  • National emergency? It may require the President to declare a national emergency, but could also be used without one, according to a legal report.
  • How would it work? The Secretary of the Army may stop or defer Army civil works projects and apply funds to help build civil defense projects essential for the national defense (Note: The Secretary of the Army makes the final determination if essential to national defense) The unspent funds that could be used are now designated to go toward Army Corps of Engineers projects to repair infrastructure damaged by natural disasters.

It's not clear which combination of these actions the President might use, and the topic has been under debate for weeks. The President has held nearly daily meetings with senior advisers and others to discuss his options.

The estimates for how much each option could garner have also been under debate.
