    Trump declares national emergency on border

    President Trump said Friday he is declaring a national emergency on the southern border, tapping into executive powers in a bid to divert billions toward construction of a wall even as he plans to sign a funding package that includes just $1.4 billion for border security.

    Good. That's what we elected him to do.

    Interested to see what definitions survive the courts. No doubt the Dems will be taking notes on how to utilize this power on blocked climate or gun policies.

    It might work on the climate issue. It won't on the constitutionally protected gun issues, unless the courts change the constitution again.

    Bad. The next Democrat president will declare a "national emergency" over global warming, gun violence, healthcare, and whatever else is on their wishlist.

    Let them try.....

    The second amendment is a constitutional right

    Defending our borders is a constitutional mandate.

    Although Trump could have had a cold heart like the democrats and just signed the bill and put all future murders, rapes and thefts by illegal foreigners to the democrats who refuse to defend our borders.

    It is an eyeopener concerning how the President is taking charge to "protect" the USA which includes "legal" citizens, from illegals and all the Dems can reply with, is a threat about how they will oppress the USA through their healthcare, gun control, etc.

    Honestly, as more time goes by, we see that liberals are more a threat to this country and that the wall will be preventing liberals from HELPING illegals who remain outside the wall, WHILE they oppress legal citizens who are inside the wall.

    Yeah, that's a good point.

    You're 100% correct, of course. But that will be their response nonetheless.

    Also true. Not certain how to proceed from here though.

    We should go back to federalism, as outlined in the constitution and federalist papers. Barring that, it may be about time that we broke up as a nation.

    You mean like they did with DACA? I don't see much difference. Neither party really follows the constitution much anymore, and the democrats flat out hate the document anyway (especially the 1st, 2nd and 10th amendments).

    NEA was not invoked to implement DACA.

    No, it was just dictated upon us.

    There were no citizens during the Obama administration, just subjects

    New law without congressional approval. But hey, who cares about the constitution on the left anymore? It can mean whatever 5 judges want it to mean.
