Welcome to Friday, left, right, and centers...
Do we need an emergency order to block unauthorized immigrants? Or do we need to block that emergency order?
House Democrats are expected to introduce a resolution today that would terminate President Donald Trump's national emergency order over border wall funds.
"The president’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote in a letter.
"We have a solemn responsibility to uphold the Constitution, and defend our system of checks and balances against the president’s assault," she added.
Trump announced last Friday that he was declaring a national emergency to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border after Congress only budgeted $1.375 billion for physical barriers.

"The schedule has now been set. Looking forward to the American people hearing my story in my voice!"
So tweeted Michael Cohen, who's set to testify in public before Congress on Wednesday.
Cohen, Trump's former attorney and "fixer," is headed to prison in May after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations, including paying hush money to two women claiming to have had affairs with the president.
Lanny Davis, Cohen’s lawyer, told ABC News that his client intends to share “personal, front-line experiences of memories, and incidents, and conduct, and comments that Donald Trump said over that 10-year time period behind closed doors.”
Republicans on the panel have called Cohen “an admitted serial liar” and are accusing Democrats of putting on a political show.

Yes the so called emergency should be blocked and voted on. That way all lawmakers are on record about how they feel about Trumps emergency on the border and their constituents will know their vote.This is more about presidential power than border security. He is not in charge of the purse! I do not believe the age of voting should be lowered to sixteen.
16-year-olds are not mature enough to vote. At 18 they’re old enough to go to war, they’re arguably old enough to vote. Having taught school for 30 years, 16-year-olds are not mature enough.
No do not lower the voting age.
Things the liar king isn’t tweeting about. Nothing about Putin threatening America. Nothing about Stone threatening a judge. Nothing about republican election fraud. Nothing about his Labor Secretary letting a personal friend of the liar walk on pedophile charges. And nothing about a domestic terrorist he motivated by his lies and hate speech. It doesn’t take “balls” to be a close friend of a pedophile, just a total lack of morals.
Absolutely NOT! For most kids, 16 is too young yet & the Emergency is Climate, Guns and POTUS himself😩
No at 16 years of age they have no idea what they are doing, beside drinking age is 18 not 16. I have three children’s at age of 16 they have no idea what politics or voting is.
Block Trump’s emergency order. This is a dangerous precedent. “National Emergency” concept should be defined by law or at least Congress should come up with a framework or guidelines to what constitutes an “emergency.”
Dicr is an idiot. A perfect example of how incredibly stupid Democrat voters really are. Dear stupid, your party pushed this very same emergency under Obama and vowed to solve it then. This emergency is not fabricated, it’s very real and response is long overdue. Pull you head of your ass, stop regurgitating the CNN party line and try thinking for yourself for a change. Be thankful we finally have a pair of balls in the White House trying to make your family safer. Lowering the voting age is just another stunt for democrats to get more uneducated and uniformed people to the ballots to vote blue. Stop political manipulation. Let’s let the grown ups fix things and send the finger pointing, crybaby liberals home.
Please do not vote to lower the voting age.
Blocking Executive Order: Absolutely NOT. Just because you don’t agree with the order doesn’t mean the President is not within his rights to do it, the same way previous Presidents have. Especially when it’s over the same crisis both parties previous Presidents have said was a crisis. Blocking this order is about the President and not about the order itself. Congress should focus more on fighting for the people and not against the President. Voting Age: No. 18 is young enough, I think it should be 21 same as drinking age, with the exception of those who serve.
Sixteen year olds are NOT old enough to vote. This is just a desperate Democrat ploy to get more votes. 16 year olds will vote what their teachers want. It’s been proved that Democrats have taken over our education institutions.
The liar king not only lied about the reason for the emergency, but he lied about why he did it the way he did. After explaining he wanted to do it faster he explained how much longer the process would take doing it the way he did. Fact is he’s just lazy and wanted to go golfing.
16? Yeah... there’s no agenda there. Jack these kids up in the taxpayer funded liberal indoctrination centers (aka public schools) and tell the they can have everything free if they vote for kind, compassionate and not-at-all-racist democrats. Ugh.... there’s a reason they want this. There’s an election coming up and they (dems) want to ensure a win. If the wall goes up, they’ll need voters from somewhere. To the border emergency, look to Chuckles and Nanny Goat. If they’d given them president what he’d ask for, after all he’d put on the table for them; it wouldn’t have happened. Nobody liked it when Obama did garbage like that; but they didn’t change the law to prevent it happening again. I guess you were right, Nanny Goat and Chuckles, elections DO have consequences! ;)
It's not trumps wall, it's OUR WALL. OUR MONEY, we spend 125 billion in welfare EVERY YEAR and you people are too stupid to see it. Too busy hating trump to see that you are going broke, you have grandmothers going without food, because they haven't gotten a soc security raise in years. Why? Because the money is feeding illegal CRIMINALS! there were over TEN THOUSAND child rapes last yr by illegals. These are real numbers! (Unless you think the census is a lie too) You need to get over your trump hate and learn some FACTS. America is in SERIOUS trouble and it's not donald trump you should be fearing. 10,800 U.S. Children Were Raped by Illegal Immigrants in 2018 https://www.constitutionparty.com/illegal-alien-crime-and-violence-by-the-numbers-were-all-victims/ Illegals on welfare according to census https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/12/illegals_scarf_up_welfare_with_new_census_confirmation_of_63_helping_themselves.html Real crimes by illegals told by real victims https://www.fairus.org/issue/illegal-immigration/examples-serious-crimes-illegal-aliens 13 yr old gang raped yesterday by illegals http://www.theglobaldispatch.com/dozen-illegal-immigrants-in-texas-gang-rape-13-year-old-girl-nafbpo-says-end-dreams-of-amnesty-28843/
Anyone who thinks President Trump is usurping his executive powers in declaring a security emergency at the southern border is blind to the truth. We need a deterrent to this wholesale invasion from Central America. It’s already proven that walls stop over 90% of border crossings in the area where the wall is built. The remaining 10% can easily be managed with a small border force. BUILD THE WALL!
Completely unnecessary. If minors are not held accountable as adults how can we expect them to maintain civic duty and responsibility?
No to lowering voting age. Not mature enough still eating tidepods and snorting consume.
Sixteen is way to young to vote especially considering the lack of knowledge government they are denied in school. The Dems are so scared to death of the next election results they will disregard their oath of office to deny Trump doing the right thing.
Congress should not block trumps emergency Democrats are trying to everything you’re just a bunch of big babies cause I can’t get through away Trump is thinking for the good of the country hello needs to be done
We need to RAISE the voting age to 25, not LOWER it! This is a cheap ploy by dems to rally votes. Kids are easily manipulated, and we all know the GARBAGE the schools teach. NO ONE who can't tell us about ww2 or any American history, or about economics, or even having a job, should get to vote!
