Speak Out: Blocking national emergency

U.S. House Democrats last week introduced a resolution to block the national emergency declaration that President Trump issued to fund his long-sought wall along the U.S-Mexico border.

• The Dems barely won the House in this last midterms and lost even more ground in the Senate. Showing how power hungry they are by siding with drug cartels is a great way to ensure they’ll never have a foothold again. — Willy Beal

• Right, because being overrun with criminals and drugs and gang members as well as families who want to live off us isn’t an emergency. Getting those low-information voters is. — Dana Watford Kavanagh

• Low information voters? You do realize the average level of education of Trump supporters vs. the average education of non-Trump supporters, right? Maybe try getting your information from sources other than Fox and Breitbart. International sources will really blow your mind. If you thought Obama was given no respect, we are literally a laughing stock with Trump. — Jess Mortillfem

• The president has the constitutional authority to declare a national emergency. Congress gave him the power to do it. — Mark Schmalhofer

• Regardless of what Congress does, Trump’s emergency funding theft from Paul to pay Peter will be defeated in court. — Jim Kelley
