In case you missed it, 16 states recently signed onto a lawsuit seeking an injunction against the Trump administration transferring funds from various sources to pay for his border wall. President Trump didn’t seem impressed:
As I predicted, 16 states, led mostly by Open Border Democrats and the Radical Left, have filed a lawsuit in, of course, the 9th Circuit! California, the state that has wasted billions of dollars on their out of control Fast Train, with no hope of completion, seems in charge!

In addition, Rep. Joaquin Castro is circulating a joint resolution that would terminate Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border:
I ask all members of Congress — Democrat and Republican — to support this joint resolution to terminate President Trump’s unconstitutional national emergency declaration to build his border wall. It sets a dangerous precedent and steals congressional authority. Will you sign on? pic.twitter.com/WSNFyAqvRS

I ask that voters in your district consider voting for someone else.

Of course, Rep. Ted Lieu gave it his backing, in a low-key sexy kind of way:
You had me at hello. https://t.co/JUbXUcBxii

You are strange.

So, who else in on board?
It enables a corrupt and anti-American group (like the current left) to go on about their seditious behavior unchecked.
Try one that DEFINES emergency, idiot.
Then we can be logical and coherent.

Why do Democrats fight so hard to keep our borders unprotected?
Think about this: If you were a human trafficker, where would you hide that women or child when entering a port of entry?
Why would you smuggle drugs through port of entry when you have 100's of miles of open borders

I remember when Cesar Chavez vehemently opposed illegal immigration. Those were the days when Chavez and Democrats understood that illegal immigration drives DOWN wages in the United States.

No surprise Desperation Ted supports this. He is more endeared to illegals than us citizens and doesn’t care how many Angel mom’s he creates. At least the president is putting the American people first…..Thank god someone is….

Why doesn't congress do it's job? Fix immigration, fix tax loopholes and protect Americans from illegal aliens who commit crimes while being here illegally! Build the wall now @POTUS
— Debra Callison (@debra_callison) February 21, 2019
The President does have the right and if you please…refresh on the specifics as to why he doesn’t as Commander in Chief. The Executive Branch has the right , and responsibility to protect all American citizens.
You said nothing when Obama protected illegal immigrant dreamers
— Don Kelly (@corvalues) February 19, 2019
The president has the right because Congress voted to give the president the right with the National Emergencies Act.
It’s not unconstitutional.🙄
— Lisa (@myhappylife2020) February 21, 2019
If this is unconstitutional, then so were each of the 12 times Obama called national emergencies.
— Based Right™️ (@Based_Right) February 21, 2019
The national emergency act has been called on 58 times since 1976, 31 of which are still in place. You care about yourself and other democratic officials, not the citizens of America and the Angel parents who have lost loved one due to illegal criminals. Outrageous and immature
— Tyler Nolan (@TylerNolan_m) February 17, 2019
Nope. We need to be able to secure our borders. All nations have this right.

Personally I want the names that don't sign it, as that would be a vote against their oaths of office to their constituents. Pretty much constituting a call for their removal from office

Lmao I’m sure you’ll get that through the Senate and the Prez signature on it as well. 🤣😂🍸

@tedlieu @SpeakerPelosi @SenKamalaHarris @CoryBooker could you please start actually representing and putting the American ppl interest above your own it’s pathetic @realDonaldTrump is standing up for the safety of the American ppl something you obviously don’t care about.

Hey Teddy! Here’s some news. He’s still your president! And he will still be, when he wins again in 2020.
