President Trump Sends Notification of Veto for H.J. Res. 46 to House of Representatives…

Earlier today President Donald Trump formally vetoed H.J. Res. 46, a joint resolution that would terminate national emergency declaration 9844.  U.S. Attorney General William Barr outlined the legal predicate for the executive branch authority to declare a national emergency under the National Emergencies Act.

ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR: Mr. President, your declaration of an emergency on the southern border was clearly authorized under the law and consistent with past precedent.

As you said, the National Emergencies Act directly authorizes the President, and gives broad discretionary authority to the President, to identify and respond to emergent circumstances that require a decisive response.

And the humanitarian and security crisis we have on the border right now is exactly the kind of emergency that Presidents are permitted to address under the National Emergencies Act.(link)

President Donald Trump notifies the Speaker of The House of Representatives:

[Via Executive] To the House of Representatives:

I am returning herewith without my approval H.J. Res. 46, a joint resolution that would terminate the national emergency I declared regarding the crisis on our southern border in Proclamation 9844 on February 15, 2019, pursuant to the National Emergencies Act.

As demonstrated by recent statistics published by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and explained in testimony given by the Secretary of Homeland Security on March 6, 2019, before the House Committee on Homeland Security, our porous southern border continues to be a magnet for lawless migration and criminals and has created a border security and humanitarian crisis that endangers every American.

Last month alone, CBP apprehended more than 76,000 aliens improperly attempting to enter the United States along the southern border — the largest monthly total in the last 5 years.  In fiscal year 2018, CBP seized more than 820,000 pounds of drugs at our southern border, including 24,000 pounds of cocaine, 64,000 pounds of methamphetamine, 5,000 pounds of heroin, and 1,800 pounds of fentanyl.

In fiscal years 2017 and 2018, immigration officers nationwide made 266,000 arrests of aliens previously charged with or convicted of crimes.  These crimes included approximately 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 killings.  In other words, aliens coming across our border have injured or killed thousands of people, while drugs flowing through the border have killed hundreds of thousands of Americans.

The current situation requires our front-line border enforcement personnel to vastly increase their humanitarian efforts.  Along their dangerous trek to the United States, 1 in 3 migrant women experiences sexual abuse, and 7 in 10 migrants are victims of violence.

Fifty migrants per day are referred for emergency medical care, and CBP rescues 4,300 people per year who are in danger and distress.  The efforts to address this humanitarian catastrophe draw resources away from enforcing our Nation’s immigration laws and protecting the border, and place border security personnel at increased risk.

As troubling as these statistics are, they reveal only part of the reality.  The situation at the southern border is rapidly deteriorating because of who is arriving and how they are arriving.  For many years, the majority of individuals who arrived illegally were single adults from Mexico.

Under our existing laws, we could detain and quickly remove most of these aliens.  More recently, however, illegal migrants have organized into caravans that include large numbers of families and unaccompanied children from Central American countries.  Last year, for example, a record number of families crossed the border illegally.  If the current trend holds, the number of families crossing in fiscal year 2019 will greatly surpass last year’s record total.

Criminal organizations are taking advantage of these large flows of families and unaccompanied minors to conduct dangerous illegal activity, including human trafficking, drug smuggling, and brutal killings.

Under current laws, court decisions, and resource constraints, the Government cannot detain families or undocumented alien children from Central American countries in significant numbers or quickly deport them.  Instead, the Government is forced to release many of them into the interior of the United States, pending lengthy judicial proceedings.  Although many fail ever to establish any legal right to remain in this country, they stay nonetheless.

This situation on our border cannot be described as anything other than a national emergency, and our Armed Forces are needed to help confront it.

My highest obligation as President is to protect the Nation and its people.  Every day, the crisis on our border is deepening, and with new surges of migrants expected in the coming months, we are straining our border enforcement personnel and resources to the breaking point.

H.J. Res. 46 ignores these realities.  It is a dangerous resolution that would undermine United States sovereignty and threaten the lives and safety of countless Americans.  It is, therefore, my duty to return it to the House of Representatives without my approval.

DONALD J. TRUMP

Barr, the AG, is the one man who can prevent civil war in this Country…if he has the balls to do the right things, to follow the rule of law and honestly investigate a whole lot of “made” people in the Swamp.

        If this means former Presidents and members of their Administration go to prison then so be it. If this means former Presidents and members of their Administration are executed for treason then so be it. Make me believe again that justice is blind in this Country AG Barr. I’d like nothing more than to vacate my rage and thoughts of civil war…and go back to a normal American life where I can raise my children and enjoy life.

        You’ve given me a glimmer of hope AG Barr. But for now I’ll be keeping my tomahawk sharp and my powder dry.

      And don’t forget the other Republican Senators who were “let off the hook” by McConnell: John Thune, John Cornyn, John Barasso, Mike Crapo, Ben Sasse, Thom Tillis & Cory Gardner. If they are your Senator, I hope people in their states will continue to call them out for this.

      I called Tillis’ office and continued to hammer him for what he did. I sent an email and received a ridiculous excuse. I let his office know that we aren’t so stupid that we know McConnell let Tillis off the hook in the hopes that most would forget by the time 2020 comes around. I made it clear that he won’t be forgiven for this.

They hope we’ll forgot their original intentions. I was referring to the Senators who had contemplated voting against President Trump – Tillis being the most visible of the group — who ended up supporting the President.

          I’ve hammered Tillis’ office repeatedly for the past couple of weeks and I also called local offices as well.

            I cannot imagine Big John Cornyn voting wrong on this. The border is a hot button issue in Texas and has been for years. If Cornyn had voted against PDJT’s emergency declaration, the state of Texas would have been shocked. The Texas GOP would have poured a waterfall of campaign money into Greg Abbott’s already deep and wide pool of cash in an effort to convince the Guv to primary out Cornyn. No, Cornyn gets this one right. He was a Texas judge and the Texas AG. He has seen the not-so-good side of illegal immigration.

            Cornyn is a RINO writ large, but he will not touch that 3rd rail of Texas GOP politics, i.e., the border.

    The President lays it out in brutally stark and simple language that even AOC and the other sub-average intellects in Congress can understand. But of course they won’t own that understanding, rather they’ll pretend the President’s words were never rendered to them.

    So it’s the usual story, rinsed and repeated a thousand time, yet the ball remains in Congress’ court to solve the urgent problems plaguing the nation. Chances are excellent that Congress does nothing to find those solutions, leaving it up to the electorate to hold officials’ feet to the fire.

    The persistent question remains: will we the voters exercise our “unalienable right” to send the inadequate fools packing and replace them with a better grade of representation? Do we have the will to act as the situation demands? In view of election history optimism is unwarranted, far too many notorious examples are glaringly obvious, but if we can even make a dent, replace just a few of the key Unipartisan obstructionists, it will be a great day in America.

If they are able to take out the president of the United States, duly elected by the people, the USA is in very big trouble.

      PDJT is incredibly smart, and genuinely loves America and the American people. I don’t think he will let America be betrayed by the treasonous gang. They will be dealt with -so that this will never happen again.

      PDJT has said his presidency is a vocation (i.e. a call from God). I thank God that PDJT said yes, because we are all free to reject God’s call.

Laura knows AG Barr and so far she’s been right about him. From the recent things we’ve seen from Barr I feel optimistic he will be tough- else we will see something like this happen again. The next time a coup like this occurs they are more likely to be successful if Barr is not tough o the bad ones.

        Exactly what would Eric Holder do for Obama, Janet Reno for Clinton? Though what you say is exactly right in a just world, we’d better understand that we’re dealing with corruption that runs so deep, our Republic will be lucky to survive it.

        Also, I would say the activity at the DOJ from Crossfire Hurricane for President Trump, and the Midterm Exam of Hillary Clinton (exoneration), to the Insurance Policy and on to the appointment of Robert Mueller pretty well has the Rule of Law on the sidelines. Your semantic argument is exactly what the left and the Uni-party will hope for. We stand on ceremony while the USA disappears.

        As far as setting a precedent for future presidents, that’s the same argument that the 12 wonderful Senators used to stand up to to our Great President Trump on his Emergency Declaration.

        Though it may not be a good idea, it would certainly be nice for a change to see unity from the Executive Branch.

    Barr’s unequivocal support and endorsement of Trump’s border policy has further marginalized and alienated Willard’s (aka Mitt’s) and Lee’s team of GOP turncoats. Everyone of them betrayed their voters.. Their pro Dem vote was despicable given not only the emergent circumstances at the border but also the nation destroying policies that the Dem Presidential candidates are promoting.

      Jackson stood up to the corrupt John Marshall for all the good it did. The Supreme Court was designed to rule on laws made pursuant to The Constitution. Marshall opinionated that The Supreme Court could actually make laws.

      Our forefathers were well read in world history, unlike our present leaders. They knew about the few true republics that once existed, and why they eventually failed. They tried to establish one based on the best of the others with safeguards to prevent abuse. Unfortunately, the worst in people doesn’t take long to surface, and corrupt the original intentions of the founders. Freedom was once the most important goal. That was replaced by power a long time ago, with the ends justifying the means to keep it. I might be wrong, but in my studies, republics have not had long histories. Our country is now one of the longest ever in terms of years. Most failures were from within, not from outside enemies. Uncontrolled immigration doomed some, and expanding from a republic to an empire doomed others. Our founders knew our republic would be challenged by evil men as history often repeats itself. What we are all a part of right now is a MAJOR event in all of history! We will continue to vote, educate the ignorant, and support our President as he fights for us!

    The RINOS are now exposed but think about this…McConnell would not allow that unless they thought that 2020 has been prejudged with predetermined vote fraud. The fun part will be election day when they realize it didn’t work again. Meanwhile, of those 12 and the other 7 that “changed their minds”, make it our mission to primary every one of those PsOS that are up in 2020.

    Interesting that Barr participated. Maybe it’s part of the veto process, I don’t know. But it is meaningful and projects something; can’t put my finger on it exactly.

    Actually, if this were theater (and it maybe), the veto actually keeps the Prez as an outside against the swamp. He is going to be tough to beat. Barry, Beto and Biden are the white males they have been railing against for the last three years now. College cheating, Dem sexual assault, anti-semitism and whatever else is on the horizon just strengthens his case. He is going to landslide if he can keep economy going.

      I say:
      IF there were anything “theatrical” in the veto-signing ceremony, it was POTUS having it on video with his remarks to make it QUITE CLEAR that the veto was necessary and that POTUS has the authority to declare a National Emergency regarding the border.
      I do NOT believe that POTUS vetoed the Resolution to keep him as an “outside (sic) against the swamp”
      BTW, who is the “Barry” of the trio you mention? And who is the “they” in the “railing against”?

    “the largest monthly total in the last 5 years.”

    I keep seeing these statistics, how huge they are, and how the recent record is not all that long ago.

    I then think about how bad it was under Obama, and how good the media was at not reporting how bad it was.

    Hundreds of thousands per year over just the last 5 years is a massive crisis no matter what the left says.
