The President does have the authority, as commander in chief, to protect other countries; his job is to protect our own. So he shouldn't have to go through congress, knowing the Dems are obstructions Obama made more executive orders that no one tried to stop - DECA, which is more than an order, but a law. Now that is unconstitutional. It already cost over 13 bill dollars just for medicaid for the illegals . That is only one waste of money. It will cost more not to build / finish the barrier than the wall itself. Of course finish it; it is a no brainer!
