trump Considering Declaring National Emergency to Build Wall
#25thamendment

Quote:The president, when asked by ABC News' senior national correspondent Terry Moran during a press conference, acknowledged that he would consider declaring a national emergency to help get funds to build the wall "for the security of our country".

Trump did not elaborate on the details of such a process.

Earlier Friday, multiple sources familiar with the ongoing discussion told ABC News that options could include reprogramming funds from the Department of Defense and elsewhere – a move which would circumvent Congress.

Sources tell ABC News the discussions are still on the "working level" adding that there's a range of legal mechanisms that are being considered before such a decision is announced.

That would be great!!!

I think the vast majority of Americans would be on board with it, given that most approve of the wall.


Now, if it turns out that he can't actually do it, even better! I mean, I think Obama had to leave his pen and phone when he left office, right?

And you do realize he's talking about taking money from the Department of Defense of America and not Mexico, right?

Yea...source?

Lol, has Trump realized that if he takes money from the Defense budget, which he would have to do to use the national emergency policy, then hed be taking money away from our soldiers.

And I suspect that the courts are going to make quick work of this plan.

I actually realize that the entire "Mexico will pay for the wall" comment never meant Mexico would write a check prior to construction.

So that dis doesn't work on me.

I think most people understand that Mexico will inevitably pay for the wall.

Mexico knows it, too.

Money will stay in the US that used to flow to Mexico.

Money that stays in the US will be taxed.

There's many different ways that Mexico will pay for the wall.

And if it comes to fruition, they'll pay dearly.

2015
Voters Want to Build A Wall, Deport Felon Illegal Immigrants

2018
CBS Poll: 51% Of Americans Support Border Wall, Major Support For Family Deportations

2018
Roughly 80% of all voters say U.S. needs secure borders, including 68% of Democrats: Harvard poll

So, there are your sources. You asked, I delivered.

Yes, I'm aware that the left-leaning MSM is flooded with articles saying Americans don't want a wall, but there are those which say we do. Source 1 say "A", Source 2 says "not A".

Well, we do.

51 percent is most? I mean it's a majority but it's a smaller percentage than the percentage of votes Hillary Clinton got.

I'd also like to see a new survey. I bet you the percentage would be under 50 percent now.

Wanting more secure borders is not the same as wanting a wall.

Yeah. Maybe they are thinking the survey is talking about making the border line on the map a little darker or maybe raised.

Not sure how. Its the defense of the border. Caravans of 15K are marching toward the border monthly. We have had an illegal alien issue for half a century which is getting worse. He's already been forced to send troops to border. And frankly--he's doing something that most of the Democrats voting against the measure have already either agreed to do or have said needed to be done. What---70% of the nation agrees that we have a serious issue on the border than that we need a wall.

I mean, the Dems will venue shop to make sure they win the initial round in court---but Trump has basically loaded the SC so that liberal non-sense wont fly once it hits the Supreme Court. I think its probably time for the Democrats to end the Schumer Shutdown and vote to fund the wall. Its all politics on their side. Nobody with common sense thinks it makes sense to shut down the government to prevent a wall from being built. Chuck and Nancy are losing the common sense argument with the common people, but what else is new....

I doubt any court will agree with the idea that potential asylum seekers and economic migrants are a threat to national security...
