No, You Cannot Declare Emergency to Build Wall That Public Doesn’t Want and Isn’t Needed

“This just another one of his hair-brained schemes,” Holtzman said. “And we know, time after time, his cruel, unnecessary, horrifying policies on the border—whether its separation of children from their parents or whether it’s stopping people from coming in under the asylum laws or whether its his original total ban on Muslim immigration—all of those were shut down by the courts. So I think the reason he’s doing this now, in this way, is he’s very worried about whether he has authority and he’s trying to threaten Congress. It’s not going to work. The Democrats are not going to support a wall.”

As a result, Holtzmann said, it is the 800,000 federal workers and their families who are being held hostage by Trump’s cruelty. “Are they going have enough money to put food on the table? Is their house going to be taken away? Is their mortgage going to be forclosed on? I mean, what is he doing to this country? For his image? That’s an outrage.”

As Lessig argued in his op-ed, Trump “does not act for the people. He does not act to defend the constitution. He acts to avoid, as he acknowledged to Senator Chuck Schumer, ‘seeming foolish.'”
