According to CNN, yes I know, Pres. Trump is drafting a proclamation to declare a national emergency along the southern United States border.
I can see if Pres. Trump wants to do this, but it remains to be just how reliable this information is. CNN’s track record for the last few years has been less than stellar. Reporting negatively on the Trump administration at least 92% is their Achilles heel. They don’t care about ratings because their contracts to appear in places like the airport, doctor offices and some corporation waiting rooms keeps them front and center.
If Trump decides to go this way, he’s justified many times over. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer have played their hands over and over again, and it’s the same thing — resist. While Dems play their word semantic games, 376 illegals cross under the border over a week ago, and 110 illegals climbed the border fence on Monday, and that’s just two stories.
As leader of this nation, you have to get sick of watching this happen to the place you were sworn to protect and uphold the Constitution. I would support this move without question but will he make it and how legit is this report?
The White House is preparing a draft proclamation for President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency along the southern border and has identified more than $7 billion in potential funds for his signature border wall should he go that route, according to internal documents reviewed by CNN.
“The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency,” a draft of a presidential proclamation reads.
“Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C 1601, et seq.), hereby declare that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States,” the draft adds.
The draft was updated as recently as last week, a US government official told CNN.
A reminder that Pres. Trump will do everything he can to get that wall and other security measures to protect the American people. If the Democrats stop him at every turn (Congress, courts, etc.) the American people are noticing this and two things will happen: (1) President Trump’s base will turn out in full and vote for him 100% in the next election, (2) Any murders, robbery, rapes by illegal immigrants or children dying in the desert will all be blamed on Democrats.
Some feel Trump doesn’t have the authority to declare a national emergency to fund the border wall, well he does have that authority. An authority that has been exercised several times in the past and four times by Barack Obama. I don’t believe that the courts have any jurisdiction should Trump declare such an emergency and even if they do try to intervene, they should be summarily ignored. Courts do not have the power to declare selective interpretation of our laws. Time for their determination to do just that to be challenged.
I’ve heard others claim how Democrats will declare a national emergency on climate change if they ever get back in power and that’s why Trump shouldn’t use this method. Democrats changed the rules of the Senate too to get what they wanted to be passed and by doing that they shut up the Republicans. It’s a huge wonder to me why Republicans do not use that more.
One more time, I’ll be among the ones to say CNN as the source makes this extremely questionable, but I have to give my opinion just in case this is fact.
