President Trump To Declare National Emergency and Build The Wall

Recommended Posts

He has every right to declare an emergency. But it would be a violation of the Constitution for him to try to claim funds for a wall that have not been appropriated for a wall by Congress.

Declares national emergency for a ‘setup’ border crisis for a wall repubs don’t even want on the anniversary of 17 dead from a school shooting. You can’t make this up.

But it would set a lovely precedent for when the Democrats own Capitol Hill in two years.

If the Republicans have any goddamn sense, they won't support this, otherwise they better complete their coup of our country before we have another Democratic President. 

 

Democrats will have a field day rubbing Trumps shit in their face when they declare a national emergency for things like gun control and climate change.

It’s the same problem Republicans have with everything in the Trump era: if they oppose Trump on anything they get primaried.

Confirmed. National Emergency incoming. Bill in the House to block Red Castle will not pass. Our border will be shut. Trump has saved America.

Trump has saved America?  A partial wall?  WTF is the matter with these people?

The El Chapo trial totally undercut Trump's message on a wall stopping illegal drugs.

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2019/01/16/trump-says-border-wall-would-help-stop-drugs-el-chapos-smugglers-suggest-it-wont/

 

“The best evidence suggests that the vast majority of hard drugs that enter the United States are smuggled in vehicles passing ports of entry. Clearly, if we want to make a smart investment that would slow down … drug trafficking, they would need to be at the ports of entry, not building a wall,” said Christopher Wilson, deputy director of the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

 

Jesús Zambada Garcia, a former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel, testified this week that for years smugglers used trucks and other vehicles with hidden compartments to ply their trade. Witnesses also testified about the use of fishing boats.

 

The testimonies seem to be corroborated by the federal government’s own findings. The DEA report says private vehicles and tractor-trailers passing through ports of entry are among the primary methods of smuggling drugs across the southwest border, with traffickers mixing contraband with legal goods.

 

Authorities have long said that tunnels are used to smuggle drugs. More than 200 tunnels have been discovered in the Border Patrol’s history. The longest was a half-mile tunnel, equipped with ventilation, rails and electricity, found in 2016 leading into San Diego from Tijuana.

 

“If you can tunnel underneath something, obviously a wall wouldn’t stop that,” Wilson said, adding that tunnels are usually built in areas where walls and fences, sometimes double or triple fencing, already exist.

It really is amazing how stupid the Republicans look in this whole thing. Anyone who supports any of this is a certified drooling retard. There is no national emergency at the border. It’s the ports of entry and lack of visa enforcement that is harming our country.
