Now therefore

Trump is dreaming about the declaration of emergency again. His people are preparing a draft declaration.

“The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency,” a draft of a presidential proclamation reads.

“Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C 1601, et seq.), hereby declare that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States,” the draft adds.

“The massive amount of aliens” – whoever wrote the draft doesn’t rite so good.

If the President proceeds with the declaration, it’ll likely be challenged in court and by Democrats in Congress, as critics have argued that Trump cannot use the national emergency authority to free up taxpayer funds and build the border wall he has long promised his political supporters.

The question of legality and court challenges is still one of the main hang-ups in using executive action to secure the wall funding. Trump’s advisers have cautioned that taking that route would lead to certain legal challenge, meaning the wall construction would still be delayed.

Well that’s no fun. He wants it to be all “I, Donald Trump, do here sine my naym in big thick black up and down loops and say that I can billd Wall” and the thing is done. He’s the boss! He should be able to have Wall just because he says so!
