President Donald Trump made it clear in the Oval Office Friday that the border Wall debate is really a competition between Americans who live in reality, and congresspeople and media pundits who live in a 2-D political narrative that does not overlap with reality.
Trump vetoed Congress’ bill to block his national emergency to build the Wall. He called his emergency an “action to defend our national sovereignty and stop criminal cartels.”
Trump referred to the “Angel parents, very important people to me and to many other people…They’ve been through a lot,” who were present at the signing.
“It is definitely a national emergency,” Trump said of our border crisis. “Rarely have we had such a national emergency.”
“I have a duty to veto it,” President Trump said, saying that he is proud of most House Republicans for voting with him, and noting that numerous Republican senators also bravely stood for the Wall. Trump called Congress’ action “a vote against reality.”
“It’s an invasion,” President Trump said of the illegal immigrant crime pouring over our border, again slamming “people who aren’t living in reality.”
Attorney general William Barr said that the “National Emergencies Act directly authorizes” President Trump to make the decisive response of building the Wall, and called the border crisis “exactly the kind of emergency” that presidents must address. Barr referred to the many national emergencies already on the book — 31 were still active when Trump declared his. “What you’ve done from a legal standpoint is solidly grounded in law,” Barr stated.
A representative of the American sheriffs said the sheriffs stand with President Trump in his effort to build the Wall to secure our Country.
Supreme Court Overturns NY Cuomo’s Coronavirus Restrictions on Houses of Worship
Religious freedom restored.
The US Supreme Court has overturned New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus restrictions on houses of worship, preventing the state from enforcing limits on attendance at religious services.
The decision was reached by a 5-4 ruling on Wednesday night, with recently-confirmed Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett proving to be a decisive vote on overruling the restrictions. Bush administration appointee John Roberts joined progressive judges in voting to allow Cuomo to restrict attendance at religious services.
The ruling justices issued a majority opinion which identified the religious restrictions as a violation of the First Amendment not otherwise applied to “essential” businesses.
Cuomo’s 10 and 25-person occupancy restrictions were decided to “single out houses of worship for especially harsh treatment,” with justices pointing to a lack of restrictions on other institutions. Catholics of the Diocese of Brooklyn and Orthodox Jews had united in a lawsuit challenging the restrictions, which New York has recently sought to walk back of its own accord. Andrew Cuomo had applied no such restrictions to arbitrary businesses allowed to open, such as acupuncture and nail salons. Meanwhile, religious organizations have been required to turn away worshipers at their doors.
It’s not up to governors to dictate to American citizens whether or not they can attend religious services. Some things are simply best determined by personal conscience, as opposed to governmental mandates.
