    Well, if this is true then it great news.

    Since so few are getting thru, as compared to previous years, then Trump IS A LIAR concerning his national security claim.

    I have an idea :woohoo: since so few are getting thru now; there should be just enuff illegals to staff all of Trump's resorts!!!

    Umm, I’m questioning his timing since it exposes this is not an actual national emergency. He’s only using that guise as a tool to pay for his wall after Mexico refused to pay for it and then the U.S. refused to pay for it.

    Most Americans don’t want him to rebuild the wall. Our government is designed for the Congress to represent the people and for the Congress to control the nation’s purse. That’s what they’re doing buy refusing to fund this. He’s trying to invoke dictatorial powers to circumvent that.

    Umm, with your level of understanding, you should read the Constitution rather than advising others to do so. The Constitution allows for either chamber to initiate funding bills. It’s bills for raising revenue which shall originate in the House.

    /----/ You're wrong again. Don't you ever get tired of being wrong - wrong - wrong?
    The Origination Clause, sometimes called the Revenue Clause, is Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution. This clause says that all bills for raising revenue must start in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as in the case of other bills.

    The Origination Clause stemmed from a British parliamentary practice that all money bills must have their first reading (and any other initial readings) in the House of Commons before being sent to the House of Lords. This practice was intended to ensure that the power of the purse is possessed by the legislative body most responsive to the people, although the British practice was modified in America by allowing the Senate to amend these bills.

    This clause was part of the Great Compromise between small and large states. The large states were unhappy with the lopsided power of small states in the Senate, and so the Origination Clause theoretically offsets the unrepresentative nature of the Senate, compensating the large states for allowing equal voting rights to Senators from small states.

    Nope. I saw where a diamond high speed saw cut through a rejected prototype. Then Democrats lied about it.

    My goodness, you rightwing freaks are fucking idiots. :cuckoo:

    I say, ”It’s bills for raising revenue which shall originate in the House.”

    ... to which you idiotically respond with, ”You're wrong again. Don't you ever get tired of being wrong - wrong - wrong? The Origination Clause, sometimes called the Revenue Clause, is Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution. This clause says that all bills for raising revenue must start in the House of Representatives...”

    You literally just said I was “wrong, wrong, wrong,” ... but then repeated exactly what I said.

    LOLOLOLOLOL

    A rightard who said I was wrong, but then agreed with me, calls me pointing out he's a rightard for doing so, a "deflection."

    Imbecile.... like I said, "It’s bills for raising revenue which shall originate in the House."

    ... and you said I was, "wrong, wrong, wrong," for saying that.

    So am I wrong? Or are you an idiot for saying I was wrong? Which is it. :badgrin:
