I said it before and Imma say it again. What government that’s supposed to be 24/7 shutdowns? And what president do you know can be sued? Sounds like a business to me.
16 states ban together with California being the leader of this lawsuit filed in the federal courts in Sacramento. Believe that Mr. Trump is “misusing his presidential powers.” Trump declared a national emergency but there is not a threat to the USA. Declaring a National Emergency is unnecessary. On Friday the Supreme Court has ruled against Trump receive funds of 5.7 billion to billed a wall over 50+ miles. Trump states during the video that there is a threat at the southern boarders. What is this threat? Why are the American people not being made aware of such activity taking place?
“Mr Trump said he had not needed to declare the emergency but had done so in the hope of obtaining the funds for the wall more quickly. Analysts say these comments could undermine his legal arguments.”
The states joining California in the lawsuit are Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Virginia and Michigan.
What is a National Emergency??
The National Emergencies Act is intended for times of national crisis. Declaring it gives the president access to special powers that effectively allow him to bypass the usual political process.
Mr Trump could be able to divert money from existing military or disaster relief budgets to pay for the wall.
Emergency declarations by previous presidents have been overwhelmingly used for addressing foreign policy crises – including blocking terrorism-linked entities from accessing funds or prohibiting investment in nations associated with human rights abuses.
The emergencies act contains a clause that allows Congress to terminate the emergency status if both houses vote for it – and the president does not veto.
With a comfortable majority in the House, Democrats could pass such a resolution to the Senate. The Republicans control the Senate, but a number of Republican senators have been vocal in their unease about the president invoking a national emergency in this case.
The resolution would however still require Mr Trump’s signature to pass, allowing him to veto it. A supermajority in both houses of Congress – currently in a weeklong recess – is needed to overturn a presidential veto.
Therefore Mr. Trump is being sued because his acts are unconstitutional and unlawful.
