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.


So now that we know there is an actual draft in play and it is asking for more money than before it seems that he is ready to finally play hardball. There are many many reasons...

1. They are hindering the SOTU Address
2. No funds for the wall will pass in Congress right now
3. An appropriations bill is still not passed.
4. Democrats will not allow Coast Guard to be paid
5. Saying no before a meeting
6. Rejecting DACA extension

He is well within his legal right as president to do this. What is the reaction going to be if he actually does it? Still cannot confirm if he can EO salaries for the furloughed workers.

Do YOU think he should be allowed to do this?

This is the best decision he can make.

Let the MSM go on full meltdown rage if they want.

What’s happening in your country IS a emergency.

Wish I had a president with some baws!!

It doesn't matter in any way what any individual thinks here. Whether I think he should be allowed to do it or whether someone else thinks he shouldn't. All that matters is whether the law, particularly Constitutional law and related condified acts of Congress, states that he can do this. Under that metric, he's within his rights as the elected President of the United States to declare a national emergency under the National Emergency Act and that Act provides him a wide swath of tools at his disposal to deal with that National Emergency as he sees fit... one of those tools is provision of funds from other sources to enact his policies to address the national emergency.

As far as the pay checks to federal employees, if, after the President has declared this a National Emergency and initiated the Wall and it's funds, Congress still refuses to do their part and end this shutdown, then it's ALL on Congress' shoulders. There won't even be the specter of falsely claiming the President is responsible for federal employees missing paychecks. Federal employees can take several lessons from this incident, but the most important one would be that the Democrat Party has not fulfilled their promise (yet again) to this particular sector of their Kept Voter pool. It's time for federal employees to reassess their priorities and recognize the handful of magic beans the Democrats have given them are just beans painted with toenail polish and not only lack any magic, but are inedible to boot.

This Emergency Order was drafted about 1 week ago. It's been in President Trump's drawer.

When he feels Pelosi has screwed herself and her party to the max, Trump will sign it, and then tell Congress he's ready to sign one of the bills to re-open the 30% of government that has been shut-down since 12/22/2018.

He can do it, no doubt about it, it's well within presidential powers constitutionally. But...

The liberal courts will knock it down almost immediately, and keep it tied up in the courts indefinitely.

So, it would be essentially a symbiotic ineffective move.

But will further expose the left's extreme opposition to much needed southern border security.

Sure.


Fund the wall.

I'll be sitting back and watching heads explode.

Never, never in my life have I seen such open hostility to the concept of border security.


Our country is heading for a civil war because of insane losers on the left.

Can you imagine what our country would be like if Death Cow-Queen Hillary The Evil Vomit had been elected?

One wonders why wasn't a bill for the wall drafted a year or two ago when it was a crimson house and Senate.

' Healthcare for all Americans! '(Jk)

-Donald Trump 2016.

Republicans had enough votes in the House, but didn't have 60 votes in the Senate. Only 49 or 50, up until Jan 1st. Now they have 53. Still short of the required 60.

Is it normal for CNN to be reviewing internal documents from the white house?

Someone is leaking to CNN. Someone who should be tried for treason. Trump's too nice to the leakers.

The courts can only involve themselves in the private property dispute d portions of the Wall. It is my understanding that, thanks to the National Security privileges granted a President, once that label is applied to an issue, the court's hands are tied below a SCOTUS challenge which would have to center on whether the application of National Security authority was Constitutional. The lower courts can block many things until the SCOTUS opines... National Security declarations and actions related to them are not among those which they can block.

Couldnt agree more. When this goes down, your mate 4.5 hours south is well supplied and armed.

This is the most ridiculous 2 years of politics I have ever seen, and here I thought the 8 previous were the extreme.

Bad thing. It's an issue that needs to be resolved, like 100 issues are country is facing, but it's not a national emergency.

Now every president can say this. Healthcare is a national emergency. Climate Change is a national emergency. Abortion is a national emergency. Police brutality is a national emergency. Tax reform is a national emergency. POt legalization is a national emergency. Prison over population is a national emergency. DACA is a national emergency. School lunch is a national emergency.

So if payment of delayed paychecks are tied to his order and a liberal judge stops that wouldn’t it be a bad thing for Pelosi?

I’d enjoy reading your source on that

We'll see, the white house is reportedly expecting and preparing for legal fights over this.

Remember the "Muslim ban" chain migration etc?

It's issues like these that expose why the courts are so important to the liberal left.

They'll find a judge somewhere that will give them an injunction and it ends up in the ninth circuit of appeals.

It's going to be interesting.
