Recently, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has re-emerged as a national force to be reckoned with while receiving significant press coverage for his constitutionally principled and implacable stand against President Trump’s recent national emergency declaration on illegal immigration.
Such a declaration reallocates substantial tax payer’s money from military spending to fund a portion of Trump’s proposed border wall.
Like Senator Paul, I am generally and genuinely favorable to most of President Trump’s policy decisions.
However, I cannot give acquiescence with Donald Trump’s recent declaration of a national emergency and call for the reallocation of billions of dollars towards his border wall project out of concern that such an executive action by President Trump violates the clear separation of powers as delineated by the Framers of the U.S. Constitution.
