Excitable Democrat House Sues Trump Admin Members Over Border Declaration

This won’t go very well for the Democratic Party run House when video of what’s going on down at the southern border is introduced as evidence, nor the video of the mass migrant caravans traveling towards the southern border

House sues members of Trump administration over ‘sham’ border-emergency declaration

The U.S. House of Representatives is suing members of President Trump’s administration over his national emergency declaration at the U.S.-Mexico border to divert funds for his signature border wall.

The suit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Washington, alleges the administration “flouted the fundamental separation-of-powers principles and usurped for itself legislative power specifically vested by the Constitution in Congress,” Politico reported.

The complaint names as defendants Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and the departments they oversee. Trump is not named as a defendant.

“The House has been injured, and will continue to be injured, by defendants’ unconstitutional actions, which usurp the House’s appropriations authority and mean that the relevant funds are no longer available to be spent on the purposes for which they were appropriated,” the complaint says.

It also won’t help that the complaint say early and often that this is a “political fight”, which will mean this is simply a difference of opinion, and will make it difficult for them to win. But, the point is most likely to get a judge to rule that construction on a wall must cease till the hearings are over and a final ruling is made.

The complain further spends a lot of time whining about Trump campaigning for a wall and wanting a wall after he won. The judge might be wise to ask why the main focus of the complaint is not a defendant.

House Speak Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced her intention to sue the administration Thursday, the Politico reported.

“The President’s sham emergency declaration and unlawful transfers of funds have undermined our democracy, contravening the vote of the bipartisan Congress, the will of the American people and the letter of the Constitution,” Pelosi said in a statement.

Congress shouldn’t have give the POTUS the ability to do this in the first place, then.

If Nancy and Company manage to win this, then it would be appealed. And expect Trump to continue to slam Democrats as open borders advocates. This suit just gives him more ammunition, which he then tweets, which the media then picks up in an attempt to defend Democrats, which then even more citizens see and wonder “why are Dems against securing our border?”
