    He might have the authority to do so, but sure as hell some activist liberal judge will slap an injunction on it, and the case would take quite a while to wind it's way through the courts. Meanwhile, the border wouldn't be secure, so he's going to do something else. Damned if I know what that will be, though. Some say support for the wall is increasing lately, while others say it isn't. His SOTU address is coming up, and I'm guessing he wants to hammer the Dems on this issue with everybody watching.

    No link?

    Not that I am surprised, I noted on the threads talking about it that he would never do it. Trump talks a lot of shit and very rarely if ever backs it up.

    Trump Says He Won't Declare National Emergency to Get Wall

    " Trump also backed further away from the idea of declaring a national emergency as an escape hatch, saying: “I’m not looking to call a national emergency. This is so simple we shouldn’t have to.”

    If he were to do that, Democrats would use that precedent and declare an emergency for anything they wanted. It's the adult move to prevent the children from running wild in the future.

    Saying "I'm not looking to ... " is not the same as saying "I won't".

    I see no reason to wait and am disappointed he hasn't followed through on his threat...it looks weak. Surely they can figure out a way to fast-track it to the USSC...what's the point of stacking the Court if you're not going to use them? Maybe they're afraid of Roberts going south like all the Bush nominees tend to do on important things. If he declared the emergency, he could end the shutdown and the Rats couldn't do shit about it...he has full legal authority to tell the Pentagon to build the Wall....the whole Wall, not just $5B worth.
