Worth a look. Quite frankly, the situation along our southern border is far more important to the American people than most of these emergency declarations by other presidents and still in place. Build the wall and throw the illegals out and seize their ill gotten gain.

Wow, many of those dont really seem like national emergencies

I thought trump had no shot with this, but maybe not

Maybe Congress will rethink delegating its power to such an extreme level

But doesn't there have to be an emergency?

The funny thing is that he's going to grab money that the state senators that support him want for their state.

Remember what I said about minions getting thrown under the bus?


A threat response is a potent trigger for motivated reasoning.

The fake crisis at our border isnt remotely close to any of those.

Trump conned you fools. Its a money grab, plain and simple.

IF YOU REALLY BELIEVED THAT ILLEGALS WERE AN EMERGENCY, YOU WOULD WANT TRUMP IN JAIL FOR HIRING THEM


*** You are ignoring this user ***
That is why I hate them for their stupidity. They were so close to greatness and squandered it.

Border crossing are at a 20 year low. Crime is at an all time low in the United States.

Trump is going to seize private property for his fake emergency. Maybe a sign that we really do need the 25th amendment after all.

I think the point is that the prez has broad discretion to determine what is an emergency under the statute

Prior presidents exercised this authority without question

But orange man bad, so now Congress wants to pull it back

Oops

All tyranny.

These should be carried out by Congress, not the President

The left is now reduced to calling it a fake crisis. That's not going to fly with the American people who've been watching this problem for years.

A fake crisis and a money grab is exactly what it is. Being honest about what it is would do you some good in the credibility department.

Yes, but this ship sailed long ago

Congress massively delegates law making authority to the executive

This seems to be just another example

The more I think about it, this is a win win

If trump wins the case, we get a wall

If he loses, this could be a precedent for putting the brakes on congressional delegations more broadly

Dems should be careful here as a broad ruling could be used to dismantle the deep state
