Trump Declaring National Emergency On Mexican Border When There Is No National Emergency: A Grab For Absolute Power Like Adolf Hitler And The Staged Reichstag Fire

After two years of unconstitutional actions by Donald Trump, he is now going a step further.

He is declaring a national emergency on the Mexican border when there is no national emergency.

This is a grab for absolute power like Adolf Hitler and the staged Reichstag Fire in 1933, which led to the centralization of power in Nazi Germany.

There is no national emergency, and illegal immigration has declined rapidly in recent years, and this is just the continuation of the racism and nativism that Trump has promoted over many years.

Congress should pass a law over the President’s veto to prevent such action, and it is certain that the federal courts will block immediate enforcement of such national emergency.

All this action is doing is stirring fear, trepidation, and hysteria among the one third of the nation that are Trump supporters.

Those who support Trump should think twice about the long range effect of a national emergency which is unnecessary.

A future Democratic President may very well declare a national emergency on climate change, and on gun violence, and those are REAL issues, not fake ones!
