President Trump did what he had to do to obtain funds for border security.

President Trump said Friday he is declaring a national emergency on the southern border, tapping into executive powers in a bid to divert billions toward construction of a wall even as he plans to sign a funding package that includes just $1.4 billion for border security.
“We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border … one way or the other, we have to do it,” Trump said in the Rose Garden.
The move is expected to face a swift and forceful legal challenge that could stall the attempt in the courts for the near future. But the declaration and other money-moving plans allow Trump to continue to fight for border wall construction while also averting another partial government shutdown — which would have been triggered at midnight absent the new funding package.
Trump, in the Rose Garden, declared once again that “walls work” as he confirmed he’ll sign the emergency declaration.
“We’re talking about an invasion of our country,” Trump said.
And in an almost-casual tone, the president predicted a legal fight that will wind up before the Supreme Court.
“We will have a national emergency, and we will then be sued,” Trump said, adding that the federal appeals courts could well rule against his administration. “Then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court, and hopefully we’ll get a fair shake, and we’ll win at the Supreme Court — just like the [travel] ban.”
During the press conference, CNN’s chattering twat Jim Acosta, reared his ugly head and asked: “What do you say to critics who say that you are creating a national emergency? That you’re concocting a national emergency here to get your wall”?
The response was swift and brutal:
Trump pointed to angel moms in attendance, asking them for their thoughts.
“You think I’m creating something? Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons,” Trump said. “OK, Because your question is a very political question because you have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news.”
Trump told Acosta the statistics he provided were “wrong” and told him to take a look at the federal prison population for proof.
“See how many of them, percentage-wise, are illegal aliens,” Trump said. “Just see, go ahead and see. It’s a fake question.”
……Acosta was subsequently confronted by the angel moms in attendance, after the press conference. As angel moms confronted the CNN reporter, he invited them to appear on the network in the background of a live shot.
.…..An angel mom then discussed that a previously deported illegal alien murdered her son.
“President Trump is completely correct on this issue, we need to protect this country,” the angel mom told Acosta.
Leftwing media and its tools have one focus for the entire length of Trump’s term: to oppose everything he does, no matter how constructive his efforts and no matter how far into the gutter they reach.
Hundreds of crimes are committed by these dregs. Cop killers, rapists, child molesters,murderers, thieves, robbers, gangs (MS13s), and a slew of other human garbage are coming into this country illegally and committing more felonies once they get in.
Families of the victims of illegals have testified before Congress and called for an end to the ‘sanctuary city’ insanity, but the Dem assholes keep protecting illegal aliens instead of obeying the law and protecting American citizens.
The cost of illegal aliens taking American lives is memorialized here: http://www.ojjpac.org/memorial.asp
The U.S. has the right to control who enters the country. There is no Constitutional or legal right for a foreigner to enter the U.S. It’s a privilege. Every country has immigration laws, travel laws, and borders.
I like how Dwight Eisenhower handled the illegal alien problem; a military-directed operation with a no-nonsense approach to kicking out and keeping out illegal aliens. Round them up, send them home.
Enforce the law
Establish a vetting process for all foreign immigrants
Build the wall
