    The President himself has admitted that he has only declared the need for a wall “an emergency” as an end run around his defeat when the citizens refused funding through their Congressional representatives. As such, the call on his part is a complete departure from the spirit of the law that gives him, as President, emergency power. If accepted, it will set a precedent for allowing dangerously excessive power of the Executive Branch over the Constitutionally appropriations power of Congress, for example or any other normally considered Legislative Powers. Those who accept this “emergency” are in essence giving faith to the power of DJT over the “Rule of Law.” It’s time for the GOP, particularly, to stand up for the Constitution over the game of party politics.
