(runs :09) at the white house this morningááá president trump declared a national emergencyááá to get a border wall. rochester's jeanette ernst doesn't believe border crossings constitute a national emergency. "a lot of them that come across the border are good citizens and god made all of us. he didn't make just the ones that were born in the united states." ernst is of the belief that if there is an emergencyááá the solution is now it was not easy to get people to talk onácamera about their reactions to trump... but i did get a few people who said they think it is a disgrace. reporting live in rochester... isabella basco... kimt news 3./// thank you isabella... trump is not the first president to declare a national emergency. the first was declared in 1979 during the beginning of the iran hostage crisis. /// a small locally owned bar and restaurant
