Stephen Miller, Senior Policy Advisor to President Donald J. Trump, obliterated the fake news narrative surrounding the national emergency at the United States’ southern border in a contentious interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace.
After President Trump declared a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border to bypass a politicized Congress and protect the United States, Miller appeared on Chris Wallace’s Fox News Sunday to answer questions about the declaration. Wallace quickly became hostile in the interview, questioning Miller repeatedly as to whether or not he considered the declaration to be a violation of the U.S. Constitution, and interrupting Miller’s attempts to answer the question.
Miller explained that the president’s power to declare a national emergency stems from a statute passed by Congress many years ago, telling Wallace “If you don’t like the statute, or if members of Congress don’t like the statute, then they should have changed it a long time ago,” while being interrupted by the Fox News host.

“The premise of your question is also false, because Congress has appropriated money for construction of border barriers consistently,” said Miller.
Wallace pointed out that previous border barriers have not been funded through national emergency declarations, and again asked whether this made the action illegal.
“[Congress] passed a law specifically saying the president could have this authority, it’s in the plain statute,” said Miller, “That’s a decision that Congress made, and if people don’t like that they can address it.”
“We’ve declared national emergencies to promote democracy in Belarus, to promote democracy in Zimbabwe,” Miller explained, “This would not be even an issue if the president was invoking that statute to support some foreign adventure overseas.”
Miller then lambasted previous presidents’ use of national emergencies to invade countries while bypassing Congress.
“You and I both know that presidents for years have engaged in one military venture after another, not to mention the fact that we do operations to destroy drug fields in foreign lands, in Afghanistan or in Colombia, and we can’t even deal with the criminal cartels operating on our border.”
While being interrupted by Wallace, Miller added, “These organizations are destabilizing the Western hemisphere.”
“This is a fundamental foreign policy issue,” he concluded.
Up to 200 Smuggled Illegals Run Out of 18-Wheeler Truck in Texas
200 illegal aliens escaped at once.
As many as two hundred illegal aliens fled from an 18-wheeler truck in Bexar County, Texas when the vehicle stopped at a QT gas station on Thursday, presenting a considerable public safety and security threat with the majority of the aliens still unaccounted for.
Witnesses described seeing a group of migrants that amounted to well above a hundred. The migrants fled an 18-wheeler truck near IH-37 and Loop 1604 at 6PM on Thursday, just as the winter storm in Texas hit the community at full strength.
Sheriff Javier Salazar is describing the migrants as nationals of Honduras and El Salvador. He revealed that the migrants were endangered by the smugglers that had shipped them in a refrigerated truck, with the aliens in danger of suffocating inside the airtight truck compartment.
ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations urged the public to come forward with information regarding the illegals in a statement regarding the incident.
“On Feb. 18, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a call from Bexar County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) for assistance on a possible human smuggling case involving a semi-tractor trailer discovered in a local gas station parking lot. About 50 individuals both males and females were encountered. The undocumented immigrants, from Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, are being assisted by community based organizations. HSI special agents interviewed the migrants as part of a criminal investigation, which is ongoing. The status of those encountered is being reviewed. HSI urges anyone with information about this smuggling attempt to call (866) 347-2423.”
Law enforcement believes that the individuals responsible for smuggling the illegals escaped into the nearby woods with the individuals they moved into the United States. Efforts to apprehend the migrant siphon law enforcement resources during a state of emergency, when law-abiding citizens of south Texas are at risk of freezing to death inside their own homes.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spoke of apprehending 50 of the illegal immigrants shortly after the smuggling event, with more than a hundred illegals still loose.
Biden’s “America Last” approach to immigration and border security has immediately spurred a renaissance in human smuggling and illegal immigration, with smugglers advertising open borders to tentative migrants. Even as illegal migration spikes to levels unseen in years, the President instead is evaluating new proposals to convert ICE into a de facto customs agency, leaving the American people without an immigration law enforcement agency.
