Trump Says There’s A Good Chance He’ll Declare An Emergency To Build The Wall

This was something very easy: give the pittance, in terms of the federal budget, to Trump to build some border barrier. Democrats could have demanded something like more security in the ports of entry. But, no, they staked a claim, and won’t budge. Even though they said they would negotiate once government was reopened. So, they’re pushing Trump to make a move

Trump says there’s a ‘good chance’ he’ll declare an emergency for border wall

President Donald Trump said there is a “good chance” he’ll declare a national emergency to build his proposed border wall and said he would use his State of the Union address next week to once again make a case for the barrier.

“I think there’s a good chance we’ll have to do that,” he said of the declaration, which he has threatened for weeks. “We have very strong legal standing.”

The emergency declaration could help the Trump administration free up billions of dollars in construction money for the wall, but it will also almost certainly face legal challenges that could redefine the president’s ability to use emergency powers.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers is working against a Feb. 15 deadline to produce a deal to fund the government and avoid another shutdown. Trump has demanded the final product include funding for his proposed border wall but has also said Republicans on the committee are “wasting their time” trying to negotiate with Democrats.

If Democrats refuse to negotiate, then it is a waste of time. Putting up some cameras and drones does nothing but allow the Border Patrol to watch them come in.

(Fox News) In fact, walls work. Love them or hate them, their effectiveness is indisputable.

“Part of our area is covered with some fencing on our east side. That accounts for about 6 percent of our traffic,” Border Patrol chief Raul Ortiz told journalists during President Trump’s January 10 visit to Rio Grande Valley, Texas. “Where we have no fencing, over 90 percent of our traffic occurs in those areas.” A day earlier, Ortiz added, 450 people were apprehended in the unfenced sector, including 133 from such non-Latin nations as India, Pakistan, and Romania.

Some 560,000 illegals were caught astride San Diego and Tijuana in Fiscal Year 1992, when a border wall was installed there. By FY 2017, the Border Patrol says it snared 26,086 — down 95.3 percent.

Realistically, the solution is to implement laws that make the majority of illegals and visa overstayers not come illegally/overstay their visas, such as requiring all asylum seekers to apply at designated U.S. facilities in other countries. Immediately deporting any illegal caught in the U.S. Not giving them education and stuff. And slamming any entity that employs an illegal without doing their due diligence with massive civil and criminal penalties, meaning most won’t take the chance. Making those who sponsor visa holders responsible for the status of the visa holders. And much more. Remove the reasons so many come illegally/overstay visas.

    Walls work. Its just a stupid talking point by the left because they want Trump to fail so hard because he hurt Obama’s feelings. In the blood sport of politics he hurt the lil guys feelings and his wife felt unsafe surrounded by a 1000 secret service agents.

    Ahh poor guys. I sowwy he hurt your feelings cause you wouldn’t produce a birth certificate and then when you did well everything was just peachy wasn’t it.

    But dont worry guys, Obama proudly declared right after Trump was elected I left the deep state in place to block trump’s every move. Not what he said, but certainly what he strongly implied. I remember being flabberghasted at the statement at the time. It was then I realized there was in fact a deep state in this nation, unelected and very active.

    Walls work and are way cheaper than fighting endless wars in foreign countries. Stupid is as stupid does.
