I’ve heard many conservative commentators and pundits speaking about Trump’s national emergency powers and how he should use them.
Top of the list appears to be this scenario.
Negotiations, if you can even call them that, have gone nowhere. So, it’s posited, Trump will appear to back down and agree to end the shutdown – after which he will then invoke his presidential authority under the 1976 National Emergencies Act, [50 U.S.C. 1601, 1621, 1622] and declare a national emergency on the border, secure funding from a number of government sources and get the wall built.
