Nancy Pelosi announced that the Democrats are suing President Trump over funding for the border wall. Democrats are adamantly opposed to keeping Americans safe when it may interfere with the invasion of millions of illegal aliens. Pelosi and the Democrats claim that it is illegal for Trump to spend money from other sources.
The funny thing is they did not object to Obama shuffling money around in order to send 1.8 billion to Iran that was never approved by Congress or the 1.5 billion he sent the Muslim Brotherhood, after Congress voted to deny them even a single penny. So, the Democrats are saying it’s ok to take the money to fund terrorism but not to protect our borders and our people. That’s all you need to know about Democrats.
Democratic leaders voted to file a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration, a move they hope will block the billions in funding he’s accessed for border wall construction.
“The President’s sham emergency declaration and unlawful transfers of funds have undermined our democracy, contravening the vote of the bipartisan Congress, the will of the American people and the letter of the Constitution,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a Thursday statement following the vote.
“The President’s action clearly violates the Appropriations Clause by stealing from appropriated funds, an action that was not authorized by constitutional or statutory authority,” Pelosi continued in her statement. “Congress, as Article I — the first branch, co-equal to the other branches — must reassert its exclusive responsibilities reserved by the text of the Constitution and protect our system of checks and balances.”
This isn’t the first time congressional Democrats have tried to block the emergency declaration, nor is it the first lawsuit.
“We will have a national emergency, and then we will then be sued, and they will sue us in the 9th Circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there,” the president said in February. “And we will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling. And then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court, and hopefully, we’ll get a fair shake.”
