Trump won't declare national emergency over border 'right now'

Trump won't declare national emergency over border 'right now'

But the idea of Mexico's paying for the new wall was the subject of a well-known, call-and-response between then-candidate Trump and his rally attendees. Later Saturday, he supplemented a day's worth of tweets by telephoning in to Fox News Channel's "Justice with Judge Jeanine" Pirro from the White House to continue his public relations blitz for the wall.

Some 800,000 federal employees, more than half still on the job, missed their first paycheck under a stoppage that tied a record for the longest government shutdown.

The shutdown is now the longest in U.S. history, surpassing the 21-day closure that began during Bill Clinton's presidency in 1995.

This hasn't stopped the White House from devising a way to get the wall built if and when Trump presses the national emergency button.

He's not tipping his hand about whether he'll move ahead with an emergency declaration that could break the impasse and free up money for his wall without congressional approval.

"If they can't do it". I know some people on your side don't even want to recognize that that election occurred and the result. "I have the absolute right to do it".

Thailand: Amnesty welcomes Saudi woman's refugee protection
She had meant to flee to Australia. "They threaten to kill me and prevent me from continuing my education", she said . However, in repeated statements, the Saudi embassy in Bangkok said it was only monitoring her situation.


Until now, Trump had suggested numerous times that he was getting closer to taking the controversial decision. He says they are oblivious to national security threats and will not compromise.

But the president himself acknowledged in the White House meeting that an attempt to claim emergency powers would likely end up in legal battles going all the way to the Supreme Court - as other Republicans and some of his advisers have reportedly cautioned him.

"This lawsuit is not complicated: We do not believe it is lawful to compel a person to work without paying them", the federation's president, Randy Erwin, said in a statement.

The standoff has turned into a test of political ego, particularly for Trump, who came into office boasting of his deal-making powers and making an aggressive border policy the keystone of his nationalist agenda.

President Donald Trump attacked a Washington Post reporter this morning for reporting that the White House is pretty chaotic right now as the government shutdown becomes the longest on record. "The Fakes always like talking Chaos, there is NONE".

"When I said Mexico would pay for the wall in front of thousands and thousands of people. obviously I never meant Mexico would write a cheque", he said.

Quattro Financial Advisors LLC bought a new position in shares of Apple during the 1st quarter valued at approximately $133,000. This figure is derived from sources apparently familiar with this request, and applies to the first 3 months of 2019.


The White House has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to comb through its budget in search of money for the wall, including looking at $13.9 billion in unspent disaster relief funds earmarked for areas including hurricane-damaged Puerto Rico, Texas and more than a dozen other states. As Fox News host Chris Wallace noted, the figure that Sanders cited referenced arrivals mainly at USA airports, and the Administration mostly stopped citing the figure after reports that government data might show as few as six or a dozen people on the watch list had been caught at the southern border.

We have a massive Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border.

Senior aide Jared Kushner, who traveled with the president to the Texas border on Thursday, was among those opposed to the declaration, arguing to the president that pursuing a broader immigration deal was a better option. Only in recent days has he begun describing the problem as "humanitarian".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is maintaining a strong front by steadfastly opposing any money for President Donald Trump's border wall, which she called a "waste of money" and an "immorality".

In December, he tweeted that migrant caravans from Central America were not able to enter the country thanks to "our newly built Walls, makeshift Walls & Fences, or Border Patrol Officers & Military", adding that "our Southern Border is now secure and will remain that way".
