Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall
President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.
Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.
Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.
And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.
Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.
Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.
Via Law and Crime:
As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.
“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”
Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.
“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
