Declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act, a gross abuse of the power of the presidency, and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that President broke his core promise to have Mexico pay for his wall.

“This President declared a National emergency because he has the absolute authority to do so. The act has been around since 1976. This President allowed Congress and the courts, waited for them to do their job. They fell down on the job."—

"The humanitarian and security crisis we have on the border right now is exactly the kind of emergency that Presidents are permitted to address under the National Emergencies Act…What you have done from a legal standpoint is solidly grounded in law."—Attorney General Bill Barr

Democrats say declaring a national emergency is "lawless." But for an act to be lawless, one actually has to act outside the law. On the contrary, the president is using clear statutory authority delegated to him by Congress.

Bringing charges against Julian Assange for alleged hacking made sense. Journalists would expect to be prosecuted for similar. But the blast radius of an Espionage Act conviction against Assange would include every working national security journalist.

Every day that we fail to act on gun violence, we are failing our children. This should be a day for soul searching across America - and that soul searching should be matched with legislating to begin dealing with this national shame.

The Democrats are investigating Trump’s use of the National Emergencies Act yet they said nothing on all those occasions when Obama used it. They even defend DACA when it is clearly unconstitutional. Dangerous clowns.

It was my great honor to sign our new Defense Bill into law and to pay tribute to the greatest soldiers in the history of the world: THE U.S. ARMY. The National Defense Authorization Act is the most significant investment in our Military and our warfighters in modern history!

This Administration continues to attack and roll back protections for our nation’s beloved public lands. The ANTIQUITIES Act would make it clear to this Administration: Congress alone has the power to modify national monument designations. We must protect our sacred lands.
