There are plenty of real national emergencies that need our attention.
President Donald J. Trump declared a national emergency last week, calling the “situation” at the border between the United States and Mexico a “national security crisis.”
“It’s an invasion,” (Trump) added. “We have an invasion of drugs and criminals coming into our country.”
He did so to gain access to funds to build his dream of a useless, ineffectual border wall.
IV Words calls bullshit. After all, Trump manufactured the problems at the border himself. This is an abuse of presidential power, and he’s being sued by multiple states and organizations to stop it.
Paul Street and Rick Cooley call BS, too.
In a post shared on the Dandelion Salad blog and re-shared on Rcooley123’s Blog, Street shares 31 actual emergencies this nation needs to address. And these are just the ones from the top of his head. Check them out.
