THE WALL WINS: Trump’s Emergency Declaration STANDS

Published

on

BREAKING: 2:05 PM EST Tuesday, March 26, 2019
The U.S. House of Representatives has FAILED to overturn President Donald Trump’s declaration of an emergency to reprogram federal funds to finance the building of a border wall.
The building of the wall is already mandated by the Secure Fence Act of 2006.  Trump’s declaration of an emergency ONLY authorizes President Trump to repurpose federal funding to pay for the border wall according to the National Emergencies Act of 1976 (as later amended).  Using dishonest smear tactics, opponents of change have tried to suggest that a future president could use such powers to make purely legislative changes.   The declaration of emergency only activates certain powers already written into laws passed by Congress to redploy federal funds to meet the emergency.
Congress voted to terminate Trump’s declaration of an emergency with 12 pseudo-Republican U.S. Senators voting with the Democrats to keep the orders unsecured and open.
Note that the National Emergencies Act of 1976 gives either the President or Congress the power to “terminate” — not invalidate — a president’s declaration of an emergency.  That means that any actions taken before an emergency is terminated would remain valid.  The Congressional vote was to bring the emergency to a close, an end, not to over-turn actions taken during the course of a presidentially-declared emergency.
Under the amended version of the national Emergencies Act (following a U.S. Supreme Court decision in INS v. Chadha) Trump vetoed that resolution.
The U.S. House today tried to overturn Trump’s veto.   That would have required a 2/3rds vote, so that a minimum of 146 votes against the veto over-ride (in favor of Trump’s declaration of an emergency) were needed to sustain President Trump’s veto.
Republicans voted against overturning the veto by 181 in Trump’s favor to 14 traitors voting with the Democrats against border security.
ALL Democrats voted against building a border wall and against border security.  Those are votes which will be used in the 2020 election campaigns against those Democrats in districts that supported Donald Trump in 2016 and/or 2018.
UPDATE:  Note that because the U.S. House has failed to over-ride the President’s veto, it does not matter what happens in the U.S. Senate. The veto stands.  There might not be any vote in the U.S. Senate.  But both chambers would have to both over-turn the veto by a 2/rds margin.  So the President’s emergency declaration stands in force.

Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall

Published

on

President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.

The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.

The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.

Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.

Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
