We can Declare A National Emergency: Donald Trump On The US-Mexico Border Wall

WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump appears to be coming together to declare a national emergency to build a wall along the US-Mexico border to prevent the influx of illegal immigrants into the country.
Outlook India reported Friday that Trump was asked if he was about to impose an emergency when he visited the Texas state on the southern border on Thursday to push a controversial plan for the US-Mexico border wall.
“I see the problem from many perspectives, I think we could do it quickly because it’s common sense and it’s not expensive,” he said.
Trump said Wednesday that imposing a national emergency was the last option and threatened to use it if the Democrats did not allocate US $ 5.7 billion for the controversial US-Mexican border wall plan.
The president’s inclination to declare a national emergency escalated after leaving a meeting Wednesday with key Democratic leaders, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, and Senator Chuck Schumer, Leader of the Senate, after have refused to allocate a financing of 5.7 billion USD border wall plan.
In a conversation with reporters in Texas on Thursday, Trump said, “I would like a much broader form of immigration, and we can do immigration reform.” It will take longer. 30-35 years old, they talked about immigration reform, but before that we need to create a barrier, we could do it very quickly.
Strongly defending the construction of a concrete or steel barrier and the southern border with Mexico, the president said illegal immigrants were causing $ 250 billion in losses to the US economy.
Opposition Democrats, now the majority in the House of Representatives, refused to support such a decision, arguing that building the wall was a waste of taxpayers’ money.
There are significant differences between the Trump government and Democratic opponents over border security led to a partial closure of the government, which entered its 20th day on Thursday.
We can declare a national emergency – we should not have to, because that makes sense, Trump said.
On the other hand, the Democrats did not seem convinced by Trump’s argument about the national emergency, if the president does that, you’ll know how we’re going to react, I’m not going to say it now, but I think the president will have problems on his side of the door to exploit the situation in a way to reinforce it, Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill.
New York Democrat Grace Meng announced Thursday that she will present a bill to the House of Representatives to prevent Trump from using a national emergency declaration to fund a wall along the southern border.
Others said they would act against the national emergency, Trump said he was ready for the trial and said he would win.
“I’m ready for anything, lawyers tell me they are 100%,” he told reporters.
