The media is making Donald Trump’s call for a ‘national emergency’ declaration on the Southern Border excuse as something that is a once in a lifetime thing…
Turns out that American President’s have used the move a lot more that the media reports…..
There are actually 31 on the books right now CNN reports….
Trump’s declaration, which is probably gonna happen and the fight afterwards is gonna wind up in the courts and under attack by Democrats…Trump is just looking for a way to save face and the border wall he wants will never get done even if he uses his power to get around Democrats and some of his own party members
Axios has list of more situations that SHOULD earn national emergency declarations…..
President Trump, and vast parts of the federal government, have been consumed with caravans, walls and a border “crisis” since at least Oct. 16. While the definition of a crisis is highly debatable, the extent of other problems with wider reach and much higher death tolls is not.
Why it matters: The border is a big deal, and the problems are real, but often lost in the shutdown madness is whether the crisis is bigger than other wrongs and injustices impacting American lives.
