Trump has the right to declare national emergency

In response to Robert Thomas’ letter on Feb. 28 [“Are Republicans loyal to the U.S. Constitution or to Trump?”], I wonder how many times Mr. Thomas has visited the southern border. According to experts on-site, there IS a national emergency.



Let there be no mistake here. President Trump has a constitutional right to declare a national emergency, with or without congressional approval.

All modern day presidents have issued such national emergencies. But this Congress would never dream of approving anything that might make President Trump look like a president!

I am assuming Mr. Thomas is also against stopping human trafficking and illegal drugs being transported into this country every day.
