Donald Trump's announcement was expected since the White house already on Thursday confirmed that the president would declare a national emergency in connection with that he wrote in the draft budget, which will provide new money for increased border security with Mexico – which means that the united states's apparatus also continues to be held open.
press conference was the White house invited a number of mothers and wives whose children and men killed by, what Trump believes is the ”undocumented immigrants”, in an attempt to show the human side behind what he repeatedly called ”an invasion” along the border between Mexico and the united states.
– We have an invasion of drugs, criminals, and people.
On a question about Trump does not constitute a bad example now, when he announces a national emergency when it comes to the southern border, and responds to the Trump again:
– We have an invasion and it must be stopped. We will win in court. Emergencies have been taken at about fifty occasions in the past. Without a border we have no country.
did Donald Trump on several occasions on the defensive as soon as someone asked him what he based his assertion about an invasion. Instead, he chose to point to the mothers that he has taken with him to the press conference as an example of how violence looks like. Individual examples instead of statistics.
90% of the drugs coming through customs, and not through illegal intrusion across the border, CNN reports.
Donald Trump even said that it was not the situation at the border right now, that he chose to declare a national emergency but that he wanted to go out a little faster than the congress.
has been taken means that the battle between the Democrats and the White house as the year began with the now moved from an argument about the closure of the state apparatus, which means an american president can take away from congress and put in their own hands.
the Proposal that was passed by congress, and has now been signed by Donald Trump, includes nearly $ 1.4 billion, corresponding to around sek 12 billion, and is significantly less than the $ 5.7 billion as the president previously has said he wants to have and that got him to shut down the state apparatus during the record-breaking 35 days earlier in the year.
money is available to 88 kilometres of new fence between Texas and Mexico, also it is a far cry from the 380 kilometres stålmurar that the president wants to have.
Neither the sum nor the size of ”the wall” was in the vicinity of the Donald Trump hoped for, and therefore there were few who were surprised that he on Thursday said it was prepared to make the seriousness of the threat to declare a state of national emergency.
Friday's announcement means that the president can take money from a variety of military construction projects and instead put them on the wall. Trump would also be able to make use of military personnel to the actual construction of the building, something he said on several occasions that it was prepared to do.
over the past few months on a number of occasions painted a picture of a humanitarian disaster at the border with Mexico. Something that has been questioned by, among others, the Democrats who argue that the situation is no different today from what it was a few years ago.
and with the president's announcement on Friday may Trump now make use of the various funds that are not really meant to be used to build a wall between USA and Mexico. Among other things, an emergency fund, as decided by the congress in 2018. The fund is intended to be used for various projects in connection with emergencies associated with natural disasters in Puerto Rico, California, Florida and Texas and includes almost 14 billion dollars.
news sources can Donald Trump get loose 8 billion dollars from the band other authority for homeland security, defense and from the ministry of finance. The largest part, 6 billion dollars, taken in this case from the various construction projects within the defence and from the control of narcotic drugs and other drugs.
– These things did not seem particularly important to me, " said Trump when he commented on the projects that he is now going to take the money away from in order to build the great wall.
the Criticism of the president's way to use its power to declare a state of national emergency was hard already during the Thursday and many focused their criticism on one issue: there is no emergency at the border.
– There is no national emergency at the border, " said house speaker Nancy Pelosi is already on Thursday.
democrat Chuck Schumer, called on Thursday for the president's threat to declare a state of national emergency for ”lawless”.
During Donald Trump's speech, they published both a statement that they will take advantage of every legal opportunity they have to stop it, Donald Trump is now trying to do.
the Question now is whether congress will allow the president to take over its powers and control the money, which it has decided, from the essential project to the building of a wall to which a majority of the american people are against. The latest polls show that 66 percent of american voters are against a wall, and 31% for.
