House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will be introducing legislation to block President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to build his border wall. A lesson no doubt learned from Senator Mitch McConnell.
Under the National Emergencies Act and with co-sponsor Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), Congress will attempt to block the declaration, but the White House has already said it would veto it, which would be Trump’s first veto in office.
The bill is expected to pass the House and the Senate.
And the Border Wall Lawsuits Begin- Read the Lawsuit
Published February 21, 2019
In total, sixteen states are suing the Trump administration on declaring the wall a national emergency.
The lawsuit seeks to prevent President Trump from diverting money from other programs to the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
Litigation is not a surprise as I’ve been writing about this for months, and in the end, it will just be a waste of court resources and tens of millions of dollars spent so President Trump can satisfy his base.
President Trump is seeking to supplement the $1.375 billion Congress approved. In total, the President wants $8 billion meaning $3.6 billion in military construction funds and $2.5 billion from the Department of Defense’s counter-drug activities will be re-directed.
The states involved in the lawsuit are as follows:
California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon and Virginia.
The lawsuit can be seen below.
