Tensions Rise: Democrats Are Gearing Up For a Lawsuit Against the Trump Administration
With rumors swirling around a potential for President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency in order to get a border wall, Democrats are already looking at filing a lawsuit against the White House, POLITICO reported. While Speaker Nancy Pelosi declined to say precisely how her party would challenge the move, if it happened, but some Democrats gave the American people an idea of what to expect.
“We’ll challenge him in committee hearings. We’ll challenge him in the courts. And we’ll just continue to challenge him and push back because that’s not the way this should be handled,” Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-CA) said.
Other than committee hearings, Democrats would also consider suing the Trump administration for federal overreach and ignoring the appropriations clause in the Constitution, which grants the power of the purse to the House of Representatives.
Here's where things get messy. The Democrats believe they have a case, based on the GOP's 2014 lawsuit against the Obama administration for forcing the Department of Health and Human Services to provide healthcare to those would couldn't afford it. The GOP said Obama circumvented Congress. And the courts agreed
Yep and we got obamacare !!!
And now we will get a wall , only thing is we need a wall around this idiot and her 25 million dollar dog park that was paid for from the stimulas bill
