National Emergency Over Wall Could Be Challenged in Court

14 January 2019

President Donald Trump said he was holding off on declaring a state of emergency to end the partial USA government shutdown that dragged into a 23rd day on Sunday (Jan 13), as he insisted on US$5.7 billion (S$7.7 billion) to build a Mexico border wall that congressional Democrats oppose.

"I just watched a Fake reporter from the Amazon Washington Post say the White House is 'chaotic, there does not seem to be a strategy for this Shutdown". Of the 54 per cent of Americans who oppose the wall, 27 per cent say Democrats should continue to resist Trump's demands for US$5.7 billion (NZ$8.4b) for a barrier, and 23 per cent say Democrats should compromise with the president. Democrats are relatively more concerned about these impacts, but many Republicans share the concerns, too. The White House also was eyeing military construction money, another politically hard choice because it would take away from a backlog of hundreds of projects. "There is no plan.' The Fakes always like talking Chaos, there is NONE", Mr. Trump said.

"This lawsuit is not complicated: We do not believe it is lawful to compel a person to work without paying them", the federation's president, Randy Erwin, said in a statement.

In New York, furloughed Park Ranger Kathryn Gilson said if the shutdown goes much longer, it will probably cause her to go into a depression.

President Donald Trump might end one conflict with Congress over funding for his long-sought Mexican border wall by invoking national emergency powers, but he's nearly certain to ignite another, with repercussions Republicans may regret in the future.

They would be deployed if needed to protect USA citizens and diplomatic facilities in DR Congo's capital, Kinshasa, he said. Riot police were deployed outside the offices of the DRC's election commission and elsewhere in the capital, Kinshasa.

However, the Democratic leader of the US House of Representatives said the ball was in Mr Trump's court. Democrats have said they would support $1.6 billion for more general border security, but not specifically for a wall.

As a result, 800,000 federal employees - including FBI agents, air traffic controllers and museum staff - received no pay cheques last Friday.

The White House's hope is that once lawmakers are at home this weekend and hear complaints about the shutdown from their constituents, they will be more open to negotiating when they're back in Washington on Monday.

Some Trump allies have been encouraging him to declare a national emergency and redirect other funds to begin building the wall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a leading Democratic negotiator, insists that Trump reopen the government first. "But I'm not going to do it so fast because this is something Congress should do".

The Trump administration's use of dubious statistics, including the misleading claim that almost 4000 known or suspected terrorists were caught trying to enter the United States illegally - the vast majority were prevented from traveling to the U.S. by air or legal ports of entry - might also undermine the president's position that there is an emergency, experts said. "The Republican-controlled Senate and a handful of senators will make that decision".

It says about 10 armored vehicles and other equipment arrived at a USA base in al-Rmelan, in al-Hasaka province. Central Command (CENTCOM) has identified ships, aircraft and ground units that will be used in the operation.

"I want to give them a chance to see if they can act responsibly", Trump said.

To Peters, "that's not border security". Forty-eight percent of independents blame Trump, compared to 34 percent who blame congressional Democrats and 14 percent who blame both sides.

The Times' story broke last night, getting blanket coverage on the cable news programs that Trump typically monitors. While McConnell has been part of the process, he was not present outside the White House last week after talks between Trump and congressional leaders collapsed.

Graham's comments are significant, given that he has been one of the president's biggest allies in Congress, steadfastly urging him not to back down on the wall or else risk an end to his presidency.
