    ‘MAKE NO MISTAKE: AN EMERGENCY ABSOLUTELY EXISTS ON THE BORDER, AND IT IS A NATIONAL AND HUMANITARIAN DISASTER’ March 14, 2019 WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement regarding his vote in favor of President Trump’s national emergency declaration: “Today, the National Emergencies Act required the Senate to answer one question: whether there is an ongoing emergency at our southern border. I voted to support the President’s declaration because, as Texans realize all too well, there is one. “This was a difficult vote. I understand my colleagues’ real concerns regarding the vast emergency powers...

    (Reuters) - Christian Mejia thought he had a shot at getting out of immigration detention in rural Louisiana after he found a lawyer to help him seek asylum. Then he was quarantined. In early January, a mumps outbreak at the privately run Pine Prairie U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Processing Center put Mejia and hundreds of other detainees on lockdown. “When there is just one person who is sick, everybody pays,” Mejia, 19, said in a phone interview from the Pine Prairie center describing weeks without visits and access to the library and dining hall. His attorney was not...

    Romney is among a few GOP senators who have not disclosed how they will vote on a joint resolution that rejects Trump's national emergency declaration as a way to secure funding for a promised wall along the Mexico border. Trump is expected to veto the resolution if it passes. "You really can't say how you're going to vote on something until you know precisely what will come," Romney said. "But, I have studied this at some length and spoken with a number of people about it and I've made my decision, pending what the final bill looks like that comes...

    The Hour ^ | 3-6-19 | Colby Itkowitz,
    7. Ted Cruz (Texas) Cruz has made his concerns clear that Trump issuing a national emergency could be a "slippery slope" for future Democratic presidents to use such powers to declare their policy priorities an emergency. It would make sense that Cruz, an expert in constitutional law, would be uncomfortable with this move, and if it had been done by a Democratic president he'd certainly be among those protesting the loudest about executive overreach. But after a bitter start to their relationship when they were opponents in the 2016 primary, Cruz has come around to being one of Trump's allies...

    As government funding has been so closely tied to this issue over the past few months, I would like to reiterate that keeping the government open is a good thing. However, my friends on the Democratic side of the aisle continue to ignore their responsibility to secure our borders and keep the American people safe. It is no secret that their hatred for our president now drives the policy-making decisions of those on the left, no matter how beneficial the policies are for families across the country. I support the president’s usage of a national emergency to take the responsible...

    Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told state lawmakers Friday that he hasn’t made a decision on joining a Congressional resolution opposing President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the nation’s southern border. Lee objected to Trump’s use of executive authority to divert funding for the construction of a border wall. But he said he’s less concerned with that particular declaration than the underlying question of whether and when a president can sidestep Congress on government spending. “It’s probably not a good idea to give presidents that much power,” Lee said. Lee said while he supports the president’s goal of...

    The Democrat-controlled House is expected to pass legislation Tuesday or Wednesday overturning POTUS Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency along the U.S.-Mexico border, as expected, but he’s also running into increased opposition in the GOP-controlled Senate. In an op-ed on Monday in the Washington Post (of course), Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., announced that should the House measure pass and make it to the upper chamber he would vote to support it, becoming one of at least three Republicans who have vowed to side with Democrats, the other two being familiar to RINO watchers: Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and...

California is in open rebellion against the United States and the American People.

    Once again, congressional Republicans are facing a gut-check moment, forced to choose between supporting and defending the Constitution or Donald J. Trump. It’s not looking good. House Democrats introduced a joint resolution of disapproval on Friday aimed at canceling President Trump’s bogus national emergency at the southern border. Representative Joaquin Castro of Texas is leading the charge, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expediting the measure, which is on track for a floor vote on Tuesday. It is widely expected to pass the chamber, where Democrats have the majority. Once the resolution clears the House, the Senate is required to hold...

    Democrats Don’t Oppose Executive Abuse, They Oppose Donald Trump Constitutional norms for thee but not for me. By David Harsanyi Pointing out hypocrisy can be more than a political gotcha. In the case of Donald Trump’s emergency declaration on the southern border, it’s a useful way to highlight the fact that Democrats who are attempting to regain power have not only refused to live by the rules they’ve set for the opposition, they’re also threatening to break those rules in even more expansive ways in the future.As soon as Trump declared a national emergency to fund the building of a...

    Trump Is On Solid Legal Ground In Declaring A Border Emergency To Build A Wall President Donald Trump is legally justified in using a declaration of a emergency to use already appropriated federal funds to build a border wall. By Sean Davis A review of existing federal laws makes clear that President Donald Trump has clear statutory authority to build a border wall pursuant to a declaration of a national emergency. Arguments to the contrary either mischaracterize or completely ignore existing federal emergency declarations and appropriations laws that delegate to the president temporary and limited authority to reprogram already appropriated...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/19/2019 | Daniel G. Jones
    Democrats are railing against President Trump's national emergency declaration authorizing the building of additional wall along our southern border. The passage of drugs, children, sex slaves, gangs, criminals, and asylum- and prosperity-seeking aliens across our border is "a manufactured crisis!" they cry in unison, and they charge the President with "overreaching." Some add that an emergency implies urgency, yet Trump has done nothing for two years, therefore this is cannot be an emergency. The prevailing law, the National Emergencies Act of 1976, doesn't define "emergency," so it's pretty much whatever a president says it is. For guidance, we might look...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer claim that President Donald Trump’s Southern Border National Emergency Proclamation is an unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist, and that it steals from urgently needed defense funds — that it is a power grab by a disappointed president who has gone outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve through the constitutional legislative process. In fact, this isn’t about the Constitution or the bounds of the law, and — in fact — there is a very real crisis at the...

    Rep. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) on Friday suggested a future Democratic president could confiscate citizens' guns based on the precedent of President Donald Trump's national emergency announcement regarding the border wall. Nadler, the new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, appeared on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" to discuss Trump's announcement earlier in the morning. Trump declared it "necessary" to build the wall on the southern border. Host Chris Cuomo asked Nadler if enough Republicans would come out against Trump, prompting him to say, "I think so" and that he believes Republicans are terrified of unintended consequences. He speculated about other...

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz said in a new interview that President Trump's decision to declare a national emergency to build a wall along the southern border was a mistake. “My own view is that it was a mistake to do it. I think emergencies are things that happened suddenly. The problems with immigration are long term,” he said in an interview that aired Sunday on John Catsimatidis’s radio show in New York... Dershowitz predicted the declaration would face a long court battle. “There will be a lawsuit. No doubt about it. It will be tied up in the courts for a...
