    I misread what we were supporting. Thought it was executive order not blocking executive order. See no way to change support or oppose but my statements stand. Trumps declaration of an National Emergency so he can use funds to build a wall is an abuse of power. Congress, and only congress, can appropriate funds. If this is allowed then you might as well just declare our government a dictatorship and all future presidents will be able to declare a national emergency and get money for anything they want that congress doesn't approve. Senators and congressman need to do their jobs - there is a reason our constitution was written the way it was. Balance of Power!! The president does not get to decide by himself what our country needs. Step up to the plate and do your jobs!
