Well, it finally happened. President Trump declared a national emergency at the southern border, just as he said he would.

Now, the House Judiciary Committee has decided to open an investigation into the legitimacy of the emergency.

Rest assured, though.

Trump was well within his right as president to make such a move.

From Washington Examiner:

The House Judiciary Committee will investigate President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border, citing his statement Friday, “I didn’t need to do this, but I would rather do it much faster.”

Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and fellow Democrats have requested a hearing with Department of Justice officials and White House counsel, writing in a letter to the president, “We believe your declaration of an emergency shows a reckless disregard for the separation of powers and your own responsibilities under our constitutional system.”

“The House Judiciary Committee is commencing an immediate investigation into this matter, which raises both serious constitutional and statutory issues,” the letter signed by Nadler and six other House Democrats said.

The ACLU has declared that they will also challenge the declaration, per Daily Wire:

Following Trump’s Rose Garden announcement, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) wasted little time in announcing its plan to sue the Trump Administration. The ACLU press release reads, in relevant part:

The ACLU will argue that President Trump’s use of emergency powers to evade Congressional funding restrictions is unprecedented and that 10 U.S.C. § 2808, the emergency power that Trump has invoked, cannot be used to build a border wall. Congress restricted the use of that power to military construction projects, like overseas military airfields in wartime, that “are necessary to support” the emergency use of armed forces.

Many conservative legal scholars disagree with the ACLU’s analysis. In particular, John Eastman of the Claremont Institute and John Yoo of Berkeley Law and the American Enterprise Institute, each of whom formerly clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court for Justice Clarence Thomas, have both expressed their belief that President Trump’s national emergency is being enacted declared pursuant to Congress’s delegated statutory authority. There is also the separate threshold question as to whether the ACLU would even have proper standing to sue, under Article III of the U.S. Constitution.

On Tuesday evening, Trump sent a tweet saying he’s getting $23 billion for “border security.”

That’s close to five times more than the original $5.7 billion asking price.

Was just presented the concept and parameters of the Border Security Deal by hard working Senator Richard Shelby. Looking over all aspects knowing that this will be hooked up with lots of money from other sources….

….Will be getting almost $23 BILLION for Border Security. Regardless of Wall money, it is being built as we speak!

Trump is getting things done for the American people, day after day, month after month.

It’s too bad that some people can’t realize that.

Washington Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal wants America to pay “reparations” to border crossers.

Save conservative media!

There’s going to come a time when people stop wanting to be cops. As long as liberals continue to call for defunding police departments and defending criminals, more videos like this one will see the light of day. Why hasn’t BLM or Joe Biden, Pelosi, Kamala, or Schumer condemned this violent attack? Why are Democrats always silent when a minority is 100% in the wrong? From TheBlaze: A North Carolina police officer was airlifted to a hospital early Saturday morning after he was beaten while trying to make an arrest — and the attack was livestreamed on Facebook, left his face bloody, and featured laughing onlookers. Rowland Officer Michael Sale, 27, responded to a disturbance call and was beaten while trying to arrest a man, Chief Hubert B. Graham told WPDE-TV.

We all knew this was the case. Anytime you type in a search term looking for a story on politics the top results are always CNN, Washington Post, New York Times, and other liberal outlets. It’s not a shock that Google, Twitter, Facebook, and the rest of ’em lean left. But that doesn’t make it right. Congressional Republicans need to take a stand. At the end of the day, Americans don’t need to worry about a foreign government interfering in an election. They just need to look at American social media giants.
