Update: President Trump Declares National Emergency.....White House Preparing Draft National Emergency Order to Include $7 Billion For Border Wall

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.

Watched and listened to the President's rally in El Paso last night.  It is great that we have a President that is not afraid to stand his ground and not cave to the Leftists.  I doubt he will sign any bill or agreement that comes across his desk that does not include the funding he wants for the barrier/wall.  The more Donald Trump speaks, the more I'm proud of our President and the more disgusted I am with the Democrat Party that no longer exists, but  consists of Leftists that slime along on their hate mucus across the swamp bottom.

The way I see it is, Trump will sign this, he got the left to cave to SOME funding of the wall and more for hiring border patrol and technology. He will get the rest of the money needed from moving discretionary money in the amount of about 4 billion, and, use it for the wall. WIN!!!!!!!

Trump indicates that he will sign spending bill despite lack of wall funding, likely averting another government shutdown.

We all know that another so-called Government shutdown will put the President in a bad light.  But you can bet that the Leftists will put this one in their WIN column, and the President's base will be very disappointed if he doesn't follow through on securing the balance of funding money.  This is something that cannot be set aside and it will not be forgotten in 2020 if the wall is not funded, one way or the other.  

"We all know that another so-called Government shutdown will put the President in a [ bad light.] "

Hmmm  By whom?  The left has literally hated DT from the moment "their republican boy", Jeb, lost the GOP primaries miserably. As did the progressive-GOPers in power at the time. 

Lets go back to 2013's "shutdown". Did the GOP pay-the-price?  Nope. And we all know how the leftist machine tried to put it all on the GOP!  Yet, the 2014 results spoke volumns!  Despite the recent record breaking "shutdown", President Trump's numbers are at 52%!  Much higher than BO and GW43's were halfway past their first term!

If DT signs on to yet another OVER-spending bill...when he did say back in 2017 that he "wouldn't do it again"...w/OUT something CLOSER to the $5.7B - THAT could hurt him even MORE than yet another shutdown!.

Look:

1. The economy is stronger than it has ever been in well over a decade.

2. More blacks and hispanics are employed today than they ever have before.

3. The USA is finally the bigboy energy EXPORTER. 

4. At least the individual mandate of Obamacare...which what used to fund it...has been repealed!

.

5. The tax reform and the removal of regulations have brought jobs back home. And the workforce has more disposable income in hand.

*6. Border security and INFANCIDE/abortion is finally center stage!  Something EVERY other GOPee-on had avoided like vampires avoiding the sunlight!  

 Because of all this, and more, the President's #s are high.  PLUS, the Mueller rectal probe is DEAD! 

If DT decides to VETO whatever CRAP Nancy & Chucky have cooked up - I'll continue to stand WITH HIM! :)

By whom you ask?  Do you even have to ask?  C'mon Luis, you sound bitter at my words.  Unfortunately, a bad light with every Liberal, every Liberal News Source, Every single Leftist who has hated DT from the beginning, every single government employee, every Republican that has hated DT.  And you have to question my statement.  This isn't an empty Tide box we're living in, and you Luis aren't DT, or the President, and neither am I.  President Trump is not caving, President Trump is by all accounts, again regrouping.  Mueller hasn't admitted defeat yet, and the Dems won't either, even if Mueller does admit defeat.  No sane person in America would condone Infanticide, and we know that Trump's approval numbers are high, at least right now.  They will most certainly go down if another s0-called shut down occurs.  You need to understand, Liberals, Leftists, Progressives, RINOs and Dems are not looking for the truth, therefore they will most definintely be reading the super biased MSM, and they will be believeing it, hook, line and sinker.  We conservatives back Trump to the hilt, all other would like to back him into an early retirement or worse.  Yes, Luis a bad light is exactly what will occur, and it will be on both sides of the aisle. 

"Source, Every single Leftist who has hated DT from the beginning,"
Hi, Jerome.
When I asked "By whom?" It was rhetorical. Soon after I offered the rhetoric I pretty much explained who would continue w/ the hate. DT doesn't have to worry about...let alone react to...what those sorts feel or think about him. Totally out of step w/ EVERY other GOPer that has ever served.
I do wonder what it is I wrote that makes you opine that T'm "bitter"!
Btw, it looks like DT will be avoiding another shutdown.  I'll still stand WITH him!  Besides, the Border/INFANTICIDE-genie is way out of the bottle!  And his new campaign slogan:
FINISH THE WALL
is brilliant!  Imo, no one in the GOP has ever been so PROactive!  And lets not forget that it was DJT that acknowleged Jerusalem as the true capitol of Israel; and actually moved our Embassy there!  Not even Reagan dared to even attempt it! 
ps:  For the record: up until DT won the primaries my choice was Ted Cruz. To be totally honest, I don't think that Cruz would've went this far.
Does this reply sound "bitter" to you as well?  (chuckle)
Later, man.

Obviously, I misunderstood your reply.  Begging your indulgence.

This is what I meant by WIN! Trump will be pulling money from all over!

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

....Will be getting almost $23 BILLION for Border Security. Regardless of Wall money, it is being built as we speak!

That bullsh*t detpstate bill was signed.  I call it "deepstate" because many, if not most, of the GOP House and Senate are ALWAYS in lock step, even w/ the radical left, ESPECIALLY where border security and immigration enforcement and enhancement is concerned. 

W/ that what I'm saying is I WILL CONTINUE TO STAND W/ PRESIDENT TRUMP!  The republicans had both the HoR and Senate when they came out w/ the 2017 spending bill - which included the repeal of the the Obamacare individual mandate. You're gonna tell me that a mere $6B couldn't've been included in that atrocious OVER spending bill?! 

The answer is NO!  And the reason is that the repubc DIDN'T, and still DON'T, want to control ANY entry at our southern border AT ALL!  

The President's signing-speech sounded like a SOTUA -- where he described his accomplishments despite the torpedoing from the deep state repubs; hard oppossition from the radical lefitst machine - which includes the media; and the pressure that was brought upon the Trump admns via that Mueller rectal probe.

So, again, I'M STAYING W/ TRUMP!  It won't be the DC machine  that will suffer the LONG TERM consequences that the democrat-socialist policies will bring us...and has brought us since Woodrow Wilson; but We The American People (including the future of generations of Americans) who will not know the very meaning of American Freedom. 

While opposing DT's rally at El Paso, TX,  "don-Betto" O'rourke yellead that what they want at that border was NOT a wall - but the Statue of Liberty.  I have a message for ya, "betto", the Statue of Liberty represents a Citizenry that OPPOSES government controls (oppression / tyranny). Eeverything that the likes of you, "betto", and AOC, Kamala Harris...and Michelle Obama etc...will result in what we've seen in Cuba and Venezuela since Hugo Chavez. 

"Betto's" words just further proves kist how UNeducated they are as well as their base has become - because of decades of indoctrination from this progressive mis-education system.  America is had become the Titianic w/ the 2018 elections. Voters have put that power back in their hands.  The blame goes full circle.  God forgive us.

Luis

Luis,

  As I've written before, actually just last week if my memory serves me correctly.  This atrocious bill should have never made it to the White House.  Senate Republicans are weak and spineless, but more so, they are greedy and corrupt every bit as much as their despicable Dem counterparts.  There's tons of money being made by politicians who are simply paid to look the other way from drug trafficking and sales, human trafficking and sex slavery.  There will be no closing of the borders if U.S. and local border politicians have anything to say about it.  The stipulations in this bill, that protect illegals and cartel members that both sides actually agreed on, should be proof of that.  Donald Trump isn't responsible for this debacle, it's the corrupted deep state made up of Democrats and Republicans that should be held responsible.  I am of the opinion that even if Republicans retained the White House, and Senate and regained the majority in the House in 2020, nothing about the border or it's security would change.   I'm fed up and angry, but not at the President.

Jerome 

Yes, Trump is all on his own in this battle for the most part. It was the RINOS and Paul Ryan that could have gotten it done and they didn't want to do it. This mess has gone on for decades. I despise both parties in DC. You're right, they want open borders.

Trump declares national emergency at border

President Trump on Friday declared a national emergency to bypass Congress and spend roughly $8 billion on barriers along the southern border, a big step toward building his long-promised wall that also comes with significant political and legal risk.

Trump's move, announced in a rambling, improvised address from the Rose Garden shortly after signing the declaration, will launch a fierce constitutional battle in the courts with lawmakers and outside groups who say the president overstepped his authority.

“I am going to be signing a national emergency,” Trump said after a long introduction that touched on trade, China, Syria and the caravans of immigrants that Trump made a political issue of ahead of last fall's midterm elections.
“It’s a great thing to do because we have an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of people,” the president said in seeking to justify the need for an emergency declaration.

Trump predicted the move will be challenged in federal court, but said he would eventually prevail.

“I could do the wall over a long period of time. I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster,” Trump said, a concession his critics seized upon to argue an emergency does not exist on the southern border.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the top two Democrats in Congress, said they would use “every available remedy” to overturn the emergency declaration.

“The president’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe,” they said in a joint statement. “The president is not above the law. The Congress cannot let the president shred the Constitution.”

Trump is separately set to sign legislation approved by Congress that funds the government and prevents a new shutdown set to begin on Saturday.

But that legislation fell far short of his demands for $5.7 billion in wall funding, with Trump saying he tried his best to work with lawmakers to secure additional border security but “on the wall, they skimped.”

Trump also claimed “I’ve already done a lot of wall for the election — 2020,” even existing construction has repaired and replaced existing barriers instead of building new ones.
