Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) a possible 2020 presidential candidate said that if President Trump declares a national emergency in order to build a southern border wall, Democrats would challenge it in court.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Harris Tuesday morning what could be done if Trump does declare a national emergency so that he can build a southern border wall, a strategy that came up during a White House Rose Garden press conference last week.

“There’s no question that we will litigate, and there will be litigation,” Harris said. “These are moments in our country where the beauty of the design of our democracy is being tested.”

“If he declares an emergency, I think that we will see again the checks and balances kick in, particularly through the courts,” Harris said.
