Trump Takes Off To Mar-A-Lago After National Emergency Declaration

Trump promised during the 2016 campaign that Mexico would finance a border wall.

President Donald Trump could issue the first veto of his administration if lawmakers propose a resolution to disapprove his national emergency declaration to build a barrier along the U.S. -Mexico border.

During that event, the President appeared to undermine his own arguments in several ways by saying he "didn't need" to declare the emergency but wanted to go faster than Congress on border security.

On Sunday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said he was working with officials from at least six other states and would be filing a suit against the White House "imminently".

Trump's staunchest critics, including Democrats who have announced they are running against him next year and other lawmakers, have attacked his national emergency declaration as an end-run around the constitutional provision that US funding authorization lies with Congress and noted that he said that he did not need to take action. Republican after Republican is telling us that privately we will have a vote on this likely in the next two or three weeks to see if those Republicans show the backbone that they generally haven't shown standing up to this president in the past.

The White House is promising that if it passes, the president would issue the first veto of his presidency.

"I could do the wall over a longer period of time", Trump said, explaining that he is now rolling out dictatorial policy that the Constitution expressly forbids.

In declaring a national emergency, a president gains a number of powers, including the ability to freeze bank accounts, seize commodities, seize and control all communication, assign military forces, and limit travel, according to a 2007 Congressional Research Service Report.

The Department of Homeland Security itself has said to the president that it is more hard to cross into the U.S.at our land borders than it has been in a long time.

Schiff said any attempt to limit a chief executive's authority to declare a national emergency must be taken cautiously.

But one of the President's closest congressional allies, Rep. Jim Jordan of OH, predicted that Trump's critics would not be able to put together a two-thirds majority in each chamber of Congress to override any presidential veto.

He said California and other states had legal standing in the case because they risked losing money intended for military projects, disaster assistance and other purposes.

On February 6, Lujan Grisham condemned a "charade of border fear-mongering" by Trump, as she ordered the withdrawal of the majority of troops stationed at her state's border.

Banks, co-author of National Security Law and the Power of the Purse, a 1994 book about tensions between the executive and legislative branches over security and spending, doubted where their efforts would lead.

And we also know what an emergency is and this ain't it, chief.

A national emergency can be redeclared indefinitely and, in practice, that is done frequently.

Miller flatly rejected suggestions that Trump's national emergency decree was unconstitutional, even after Wallace read out Article 1, Section 9, Clause 7 of the Constitution, which reads in part: "No money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in outcome of appropriations made by law". "They can revisit it for the future, they can't revisit it now, because you can't pass ex post facto laws", Renshon said.

Trump is unrepentant. An emergency declaration in many ways is a neat political device that allows him to move on from his defeats in Congress over the wall.

"You don't know what you don't know, and you don't catch what you don't catch", Miller said.
