The White House is drafting an emergency order to include $7 billion for the border wall according to a new report by CNN.
The President is planning on pulling money from the Pentagon’s budget citing Title 10 of the US Code.
The White House is preparing a draft proclamation for President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency along the southern border and has identified more than $7 billion in potential funds for his signature border wall should he go that route, according to internal documents reviewed by CNN.
“The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency,” a draft of a presidential proclamation reads.
“Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C 1601, et seq.), hereby declare that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States,” the draft adds.
The draft was updated as recently as last week, a US government official told CNN.
CNN reported that the Trump admin could pull $681 million from treasury forfeiture funds, $3.6 billion in military construction, $3 billion in Pentagon civil works funds, and $200 million in Department of Homeland Security funds, the official said.
The declaration will be challenged in court and by the obstructionist Democrats in Congress.
The government is in week 4 of the partial government shutdown and President Trump told Pelosi Thursday he will not cave.
I pray they find their spines this time. Or country depends on it, if we are to have any hope it remains a Constitutional Republic.
I agree. Trump did exactly what needed to be done with the shutdown. He needed to show as much as possible that he was willing to make a deal. Him opening the govt for 3 weeks shows he is giving them one last chance to get it right. On the 15th, if they govt shouts down again, it will be totally on the Dems. Then he will declare the National Emergency, which it truly is!
He gave them every opportunity to come to the table. After the 3 weeks, he will declare a National Emergency, and, so he should~! We have 12,000 more headed to our border with all kinds of disease.
Here's another report on this!
Trump drafts $7B emergency order for border wall.
White House sources have revealed that President Trump is preparing an emergency declaration to build the wall on the southern border.
An exclusive CNN report late Thursday describes the draft of the proclamation, which declares a national emergency and allocates more $7 billion in funding to construct the border wall.
“The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency,” the draft reportedly says.
DoD Official: Trump Can Use Military to Build Wall Without National Emergency
WASHINGTON—The Undersecretary of Defense for Policy at the Department of Defense said on Jan. 29 that President Donald Trump has the authority to use the military to construct a barrier without calling a national emergency, as he has said he might do if he can’t get funding for a border wall through Congress.
Testifying at the House Armed Services Committee, Undersecretary John Rood was asked by Rep. Mo Brooks (R- Ala.) if the president had the authority to use 10 U.S. Code § 284 to deploy the military to the southern border to “build fences and a lot of other things.”
The law says the secretary of defense may provide assistance to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) “for purposes of increasing ongoing efforts to secure the southern land border of the United States,” which includes the “construction of roads and fences, and the installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.”
“If you look it up in the dictionary, the word ‘fence’ includes the word ‘barrier’ and the word ‘barrier’ includes walls made of a variety of different materials,” Brooks said. “You’ve mentioned military forces along the southern border, have any of them been deployed pursuant to 10 U.S. Code § 284?”
“I don’t believe any of our forces have been deployed pursuant to 10 U.S. Code § 284,” Rood said in reply. “You are correct, however, that use of authority would authorize the secretary of defense to construct barriers, roads … those types of materials to disrupt drug smuggling.”
He declined to estimate how much it might cost the department were the Army Corps of Engineer to build the wall, saying the cost would depend on what is in the national emergency declaration.
Trump doesn't cave, he simply regroups and attacks from a different direction.
No surprise here!
Speaker Nancy Pelosi draws a red line on any bipartisan border security proposal: "There's not going to be any wall money in the legislation."
President Trump was 100% correct, negotiating with the Leftist Dems is a waste of time and energy. Just build the barrier without Pelosi/Schumer approval!!!
