You Won’t Believe How A Judge Just Shut Down Trump’s Plan To Stop The Caravan

Donald Trump is fending off opposition at every front to stop the migrant caravan invasion.

The President delivered a primetime speech explaining why building the wall was central to preventing millions of illegal aliens from flooding into the country.

But you won’t believe how this Judge just shot down Trump’s plan to stop the caravan.

Trump and the Democrats are locked in a battle over five billion dollars in funding for the wall.

In 2013, every Senate Democrat voted for a bill that contained enough money to construct over 300 miles of border fencing.

But because Trump is now the President, Democrats are opposed to the wall.

So Trump floated the idea of using the 1976 National Emergency Act to order the military to build the wall.

Some of his supporters urged him to take this tact.

North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows – who chairs the House Freedom Caucus and is one of the President’s closest allies in Congress – urged him to follow that path.

“Democrats continue to refuse to negotiate in good faith or appropriate any money for border barriers. If they won’t compromise, POTUS should use asset forfeiture money or other discretionary fees to start construction. If not, he should declare a national emergency. It’s time,” Meadows posted to social media.

But Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano threw up a giant stop sign.

Napolitano – who was rumored to be on the short list for the Supreme Court back in 2017 – told Fox News Channel viewers that this move would be unconstitutional.

Napolitano wrote, “We know from the plain wording of the Constitution and from history that all expenditures of money from the federal treasury and all federal use of private property must first be approved by Congress. In 1952, the Supreme Court ruled on this when President Harry Truman seized American steel mills during a labor strike and directed the secretary of commerce to hire folks to operate the mills, pursuant to his own emergency declaration that steel was vital to the war effort in Korea. The court held that only Congress could authorize the seizure or adverse government occupancy of private property and the expenditure of money needed to operate the mills.”

“Then, in 1976, Congress provided a definition — which, shortly thereafter, the courts refined — of a national emergency: the existence of events truly beyond the ordinary, wherein there is a palpable and immediate threat to lives, safety or property that cannot be addressed by the employment of ordinary government assets or the exercise of ordinary governmental powers. That is hardly the case today with the former Central American caravan in Mexico now settled in and housed by the Mexican government away from the border,” the Fox News legal analyst continued.

The plain reading of the National Emergency Act gives the President the authority to declare a national emergency and use the military for construction projects for national defense.

Many experts disagree with Napolitano’s reasoning.

And many pro-amnesty RINOs want Trump to use this authority so Democrats can tie the wall up in court with lawsuits over the constitutionality of Trump’s decision.

That would allow these RINOs to block Trump’s wall without their fingerprints being on the opposition.

          Thanks. But Trump does have the right to declare an emergency due to the direct danger to our society. And there was no reason for my brother, who was a supply sargant in the Army at the time of desert storm, To be put back on active duty and go there to help with accounting for supplies. He had already been discharged and they had supply sargants over there. Also, he was told if he EVER talked about Nam he would be killed by our government.

            ” But Trump does have the right to declare an emergency due to the direct danger to our society.”

            I agree 100%. Sorry to hear about your brother. I don’t see how he could be forced back into service. I am not surprised that he was threatened, ; he was probably one of many. Hopefully he came back home from Desert Storm alive and uninjured.

            This is no longer just migrants entering the United States illegally, we are being invaded by the enemy. Border Patrol agents have been shot and killed by some of these people an most recently belted with rocks that were soaked in gasoline and lit on fire! If it isn’t stopped, eventually there will be more illegals than citizens! WAKE UP AMERICA!

          3. Roger

            We elected President Trump to protect the United States and the American people and he will do whatever he has to do to do that and that is why:

            Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS! President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! Make America Great Again, greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

            No DACA, not now, not ever!

            We want the wall. The democrats will NEVER allow us to be protected from invaders. We need the emergency declared to stop these invaders. He has the right to delcare war on the invaders.

        2. Roger

          They gave him permission after he did, why in the hell do you believe anything you read in a rag like Th Los Angeles Times?

            I mistakenly thought that the poster was a liberal and so provided a source that I thought they would find credible. That was not the only one. There were several.

          It would be. But according to reports that I read you can just scale the wall. Any way we can get the illegals in these rich peoples yards will be ok.

    If not for the R I N Os the G O P would be in a much better situation,,, If & when they lose the presidency or senate, the G O P will be no more…& neither will real America,
    BUILD THE WALL… M A G A…!

      I wonder if this ass, has ever heard of the Secure Fence Act of 2006 (Pub.L. 109–367) into law stating, “This bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform.”

    By reading the above article, I finally understand why Napolitano has changed so much in recent months. He is angry because he is not at the very top of the list for the Supreme Court. Previously, apparently hoping for the nomination, he was very supportive of President Trump. In the last few months, he has turned and seems to be against Trump. So, as I would never have suspected, he too is only after his job, not supporting this country and MAGA. What a disappointment! JUdge, this is NOT the way to gain a future appointment.

      FUNNY………I’VE NOTICED THAT, TOO………

      I DON’T EVEN LIKE SEEING HIM ON FOX ANYMORE EITHER…..HE STILL THINKS HE’S A VIABLE JUDGE…….NOT HARDLY……..

      I’VE NEVER LIKED JUDGES AND HE PROVES MY POINT……JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE TITLE THEY THINK EVERYONE SHOULD BELIEVE THEM……..NOT…….

    OK, so f the monies had been approved for a wall several years ago why isn’t it available now. If it was used for something else then someone needs to answer for that and the wall should be approved for construction.

  4. Monica

    No more foreign aid to other countries until we get the wall. I would hate to see emergency funding being diverted as there are places that would be worse off from their natural disaster recoveries if the money was cut off from them.

  5. tes d'aless

    i want to know why using our tax dollars to fund these illegals who are breaking our laws is ok?????? that is not my America

    This is a national emergency due to the fact that the democrats are refusing to stop violent intruders from coming here. Since the caravans are intruders and using force to try to enter Trump has the right to declare an emergency and have the military build out wall. We are in danger due to this invasion.

  7. George T Horvat

    “HEY!” You so-called judicial experts! An invasion is still an invasion! The invaders don’t have to represent a foreign power or even be armed. Mass illegal infiltration across our borders by citizens of other countries “IS AN INVASION!”
