Trump’s national emergency order likely to be blocked by courts

The Department of Justice has warned the White House that President Trump’s national emergency declaration will most likely be blocked by courts, at least on a temporary basis. The White House has reportedly been preparing to mount a legal effort against possible court challenges.

Reminder that Maduro cemented his power after the Socialist Party lost control of the legislative, by a landslide. So he stacked the Supreme Court with loyal judges, which immediately ruled that Congress had no powers, and the president should have them instead. There's no limit to how much damage activist judges can do. It's about time we, as Western Civilization, start figuring out a way to hold judges accountable for usurping powers from the other branches and violating the Constitution.

Here is a genius solution to Trump's wall financing dilemna: Appeal to the U.S. public directly and set up a separate fund to be financed by the people directly! This will work! Many patriots would do it even if their contributions are not tax deductible. All he needs to do is appeal to the people like he always does. signed Julius

Much of the money would be pulled from the Department of Defense. Stealing money from the military, so either Trump doesn't care about our Troops and or the Military budget is bloated to the nth degree and needs to be gone over line by line and cut.

Andy Jackson once said “The court has made its decision, let’s see them enforce it”. Then use the military to block any attempt by the court to physically enforce their order. The courts (outside maybe SCOTUS) have no say on national security to prevent the president from acting.

Where is RBG? How many circuit court justices has Trump appointed in just two years? The judicial activism from leftist judges won't be a problem much longer.

It’s like we live in a judicial state. Everything, even when it is clearly the purview of another branch of government is subject to a judicial veto. We have balance of power issues.

As it should be. There is simply no data to justify a wall on the southern boarder. Besides, free countries don't have walls, prisons do! People who "want" or "support" that wall are so brainwashed with fear they think poor, kind, and honest people from Mexico are coming to the US to rape and murder etc. When all the statistical data proves otherwise. With that being said I don't see any way a Judge could allow such a thing.

This is fine.. Trump should pass the current spending bill to begin on border security. By the time 'State of Emergency' funds are freed up by the SCOTUS, it will be time to move onto other phases of building the wall.

This is possible because judges don't really live in the real world.

5 billion and something dollars for a wall and only 500 million over a period of ten tears for cancer research. people can't see the real issues even if he himself says right to ur face in the state of union. wake look at the issues that really affect YOU.

so people don't really even care about the fact that there really is no emergency and Trump is just making the whole thing up. like always support ur candidate at matter the cost or facts.
