senate Bill S. Joint Res. 54

Should Congress Terminate the Border Security Emergency Declared by President Trump?

Argument in favor

President Donald Trump usurped congressional authority by arbitrarily declaring a national emergency in an effort to fund construction of his border wall. Congress ought to exercise its constitutional power as a coequal branch of government by terminating the emergency declaration.

If there were any deportations of the drug lords, cartel enforcers, human traffickers or crazed gang members that was THE JUSTIFICATION for declaring a border emergency and the WALL, I would say OK. There were none. All I have seen is the mass deportation of people who have lived here peacefully for years, worked hard to support their families, paid their federal taxes, supported our military and behaved as good citizen's. So the "border crisis" is bullshit. I wonder how many rich folk, how many white supremacists, how many Congressman- dutifully pay their fair share of federal taxes? As far as the massive influx of immigrants, this was a manufactured crisis due to our stopping humanitarian aid to South American countries whose food chain has been ravaged by climate change as well as those wanting to get here before the promised more stringent barriers are fully imposed. trump manufactured this ‘crisis’ based on race based hate to have a rallying point for those who are easily swayed by slogans, chants and innuendo.

Brian said it succinctly. There's no emergency. Trump shifted funds from the military to his wall. Other pressing issues suffer from this egomaniac's focus on his personal agenda.

Argument opposed

For better or worse, Congress gave the president the power to declare emergencies and use certain defense funds to address them. This bill is nothing more than an attempt by Democrats to score political points, as they know they won’t have the votes to override President Trump’s veto.

Congress has been unwilling to protect the United States by reforming immigration. The president has been stopped at every turn by a congress that wants open borders and wants the tax payer to pay for illegal immigration and support the Democrat party. Pass a bill that is a true immigration policy. Protect the borders and citizens of the United States.

Just more PROOF, that Democrats respect and love Illegal immigrants more than their constituents. They are GRAND STANDING for POLITICAL PURPOSES only. Fix the LAWS and the PROBLEM goes away. Geez how simple would this be!!!!But no. The Democrats want to have a bigger voter base with illegal immigrants voting in elections that have NO ID REQUIREMENTS. Go figure.

    Fascinating that we haven’t been hearing about any hordes of raping pillaging brown people coming across the border lately. Are they still coming here by the thousands, and tens of thousands, and millions?

    yeah right. Let's get our borders safe and secure. Start vetting properly and start deporting all of the illegals. Then after that, we need to start allowing people to immigrate here on a merit-based system. The United States of Americas' sovereignty is the most important thing to protect.

    Steals money from the military and needed national security projects to fund a fantasy for rural America’s anxieties. That is stealing smart taxpayer money for an absurdly ineffective campaign fantasy. The gop’s showing they’re NOT the party of national security or military, they’re lost in their culture wars and we can dismiss this gop myth forever more.

    No wall! End detention at the concentration camps. Treat our fellow humans with dignity and respect. Extend that dignity and respect to animals and the environment. In short, be everything Donald Trump is not.

    We all know that the current Democrat strategy is to have open borders to encourage all illegals to vote for Democrats who are giving free everything to them. Democrats are only elected in areas where voters are poor, ignorant and needy. The illegals are their only hope.

    Building some wall in the middle of nowhere with no effect is moronic!! How about a trench 100 feet wide and 60 feet deep. Digging a hole in the ground is more practical and more of a deterrent!! Geez!! Drive heavy equipment across it once a week to disturb and destroy any type of tunneling someone would try to get underneath. You’d think that you would have better ideas than a wall. Morons!

    We need the wall. I stand in strong support for President Trump’s actions. If Congress won’t support securing our borders, we will need to vote for new congressional candidates in the next election.
