Donald Trump erklærer nasjonal krise for å kunne gå utenom Kongressen og bygge muren langs grensen i sør.

– Vi kommer til å løse den nasjonale krisen ved grensen på den ene eller andre måten, vi er helt nødt, sa presidenten i Rosehaven.

Demokratene lovte å klage vedtaket inn for rettssystemet.

The move is expected to face a swift and forceful legal challenge that could stall the attempt in the courts for the near future. But the declaration and other money-moving plans allow Trump to continue to fight for border wall construction while also averting another partial government shutdown — which would have been triggered at midnight absent the new funding package.

Dermed legger Trump opp til at han vil oppfylle ett av de mest sentrale løftene fra valgkampen for to år siden: Å bygge en mur langs grensen i sør.

Trump plans to redirect $3.6 billion in military construction funding toward the border project. Trump will also take separate executive action repurposing about $2.5 billion from the Defense Department’s drug-interdiction program and $600 million from the Treasury Department’s asset-forfeiture fund.

Trump kunne ikke gått inn i valgkampen for 2020 hvis muren ikke var bygget. Demokratene ønsker åpne grenser. Flere karavaner er på vei fra Mellom-Amerika.

«We’re talking about an invasion of our country,» Trump said.

Dette provoserer liberale journalister og Demoratene. CNNs Jim Acosta utfordret Trump til holmgang slik han pleier. -Hvor har du det fra at det er en krise, det er ingen krise, sa Acosta. Trump gikk noen runder før han ba Acosta sette seg. – Ser du disse mødrene? sa Trump. Det var mødrene til barn som var drept av illegale innvandrere og de konfronterte senere Acosta.

 

Nasjonale krisefullmakter er erklært 59 ganger og 31 er fortsatt aktive

This isn’t the only national emergency active in the U.S.

The president has the power to take such an action — detailed in the National Emergencies Act of 1976 — if he or she believes the nation is «threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances (other than natural disasters, war, or near-war situations),» according to a 2007 Congressional Research Service (CRS) report. In the past 43 years, presidents have declared at least 58 states of emergency (not including weather-related events).
