There’s no doubt that liberals are freaking out over the move, which leads many people to suggest that it will work to stop the influx of illegals into the U.S.
The center supports open borders, and Goitein claimed the move could allow the president to ‘take money from Americans’ bank accounts, shutter radio stations, and unleash biological agents.’
“The Brennan Center is named for the late liberal Supreme Court Justice William Brennan and is funded by George Soros-allied groups and other leftist organizations like the Schumann Media Center and the Joyce Foundation.
“Previous presidents have issued 58 national emergencies since 1979. Thirty-one of those are still in effect.”
This is Trump’s fourth national emergency declaration, but slick Willie issued the most at a whopping 17.
“What are the risks of the executive branch having this kind of power?” Audie Cornish, a host at taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR), asked Goitein.
“The risks are that these laws are — some of them — are incredibly potent in terms of what they allow,” Goitein claimed. “In this case, we’re talking about moving money within the Department of Justice to do something that Congress really doesn’t want the president to do.”
“That’s bad enough,” Goitein said. “But there are powers here that would allow the president to shut down communications facilities, radio stations, to freeze Americans’ bank accounts and seize their assets.”
“There are powers that allow the president, believe it or not, to suspend the prohibition on government testing of chemical weapons and biological agents on unwitting human subjects,” Goitein said. “So it’s really extraordinary what some of these powers would allow.”
“And if it’s the case that the president can simply make up an emergency anytime he wants in order to gain access to those powers, then we’re in real trouble,” Goitein said.
The hate and fear mongering is palpable.
And, a number of liberal groups and states are already trying to block it.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said on Sunday he “definitely and imminently” planned to file a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s declaration. Perhaps the president will file one for the $3.5 billion California has stolen from the American taxpayer?
He added, “We are prepared. We knew something like this might happen, and with our sister state partners, we are ready to go.”
Becerra specified that New Mexico, Oregon, Hawaii and Minnesota will be joining the lawsuit. Many people point out that the only state that would be impacted by the emergency is New Mexico, ass Minnesota is filled with migrants of all nationalities and Hawaii already has natural borders.
