Judge rejects Democrats’ effort to block Trump’s border emergency

Sharing is Caring!

A federal judge in D.C. has rejected an effort by House Democrats to block President Trump’s use of emergency powers to reprogram military funds for his border wall.

“This is a case about whether one chamber of Congress has the “constitutional means” to conscript the Judiciary in a political turf war with the President over the implementation of legislation. … [W]hile the Constitution bestows upon Members of the House many powers, it does not grant them standing to hale the Executive Branch into court claiming a dilution of Congress’s legislative authority. The Court therefore lacks jurisdiction to hear the House’s claims and will deny its motion.”
