The wall without reform is meaningless.
The system is broken and needs repair if not entirely replaced.
In addition to the reasons you listed.

I do not think ANY of the reasons you listed or any meaningful repairs to the system are in that spending bill.
More judges perhaps but that is just a band aid like more beds.

How does it suck?

We have super delegates so critics don't matter.

Big surprise... the so called king of "the art of the deal" can't actually make a deal of any kind, so he decides to do something foolishly unprecedented and dangerous. Yet another example of ego-before-rationale from ole Trump. Can't wait to see how this plays out... history won't look kindly on this dolt.

IMO trump had this planned prior to inviting chuck and nancy to the white house for that press conference.
Otherwise he would not have been so bold as to claim the shutdown, and publicly insult them.
Get what he could from congress, then declare the emergency on a problem admitted by congress that effects national security.
It is quite underhanded and could be portrayed as so in the media if they do not go to court and challenge presidential powers.
IMO it is why he sat on the sidelines and allowed the RINOs to negotiate with them. It exposed the RINOs as well. They do not come out of this looking anything more than stooges who don't care about illegal immigration.
Only POTUS gets a win out of this.
That is trumps style imo.


I doubt left wing media is going to announce that Trump played the Democrats like a fiddle and won.

no but if they did, and the dems did not sue, it could start a conversation to fix the system and not just a wall

Cause Trump's approval rating sucks and the bulk of the populous are against declaring this so-called "national emergency".


When reality gets too real, I encourage folks to take a double of whatever you're having, because it's moved you about as far from reality as it gets...

I am still trying to figure out how the court system has any part to play in either national security or immigration cases.

Would there not have to be someone, who has "standing" in a case before the court, to bring about any legal action?

Who is going to file a complaint because the President is keeping them from being able to invade the U S and breach our security ??

How many illegal immigrants are going to come forward and file a complaint because the President built a wall to keep them out ??

But then again, some judge in District 9 will allow the case anyway.



I am not a lawyer, so I am talking out my azz as far as the process is concerned. However, you just know they will file some sort of challenge claiming the President has no authority just like they did earlier in his term.

I wonder what kind of emergency Trump will declare! Economic? Humanitarian? Security?


Let's be honest: Does it really matter to you?

I assume by now some liberal judge in California will have filed a motion to stop it.

If they haven't yet I'm sure their signing the documents now.

Twice now Democrats have had to chance to Save DACA recipients and what did they do?

Nothing.

They will use DACA Recipients as a plaything as it suits them to have Big Orange Man be mean to DACA people.

Just to piss the Dems off, Trump should just do an Amnesty on all DACA people who qualify and have registered. Take that pawn off the chess table.

See how the Democrats respond to that.
