Donald Trump was just stabbed in the back on the caravan by one shocking traitor
Donald Trump is considering declaring a national emergency and ordering the military to build the border wall.
It may be his only chance to stop the migrant invasion.
But he was just stabbed in the back by the last person he ever suspected.
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano wrote an op-ed claiming Trump’s proposed executive action to build the wall is unconstitutional.
Napolitano wrote on Fox News:
We know from the plain wording of the Constitution and from history that all expenditures of money from the federal treasury and all federal use of private property must first be approved by Congress. In 1952, the Supreme Court ruled on this when President Harry Truman seized American steel mills during a labor strike and directed the secretary of commerce to hire folks to operate the mills, pursuant to his own emergency declaration that steel was vital to the war effort in Korea. The court held that only Congress could authorize the seizure or adverse government occupancy of private property and the expenditure of money needed to operate the mills.
Then, in 1976, Congress provided a definition — which, shortly thereafter, the courts refined — of a national emergency: the existence of events truly beyond the ordinary, wherein there is a palpable and immediate threat to lives, safety or property that cannot be addressed by the employment of ordinary government assets or the exercise of ordinary governmental powers. That is hardly the case today with the former Central American caravan in Mexico now settled in and housed by the Mexican government away from the border.
Trump supporters were stunned.
There were rumors floating in 2017 around that Napolitano was considered for a Supreme Court nomination.
But now conservatives breathed a sigh of relief knowing the President passed on Napolitano for Neil Gorsuch.
