      A letter from ex-bureaucrats? Not worth the paper.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

            Well, given the list of active national emergencies (all 31 of them), the people that signed off on that letter are idiots.

            https://www.cnn.com/2017/08/12/polit...oid/index.html

            Now, that's your favorite go to source saying it.

            Look at their list:


            1. Blocking Iranian Government Property (Nov. 14, 1979)

            2. Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (Nov. 14, 1994)

            5. Blocking Assets and Prohibiting Transactions with Significant Narcotics Traffickers (Oct. 21, 1995)

            6. Regulations of the Anchorage and Movement of Vessels with Respect to Cuba (Mar. 1, 1996)

            7. Blocking Sudanese Government Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Sudan (Nov. 3, 1997)

            8. Blocking Property of Persons Who Threaten International Stabilization Efforts in the Western Balkans (Jun. 26, 2001)

            9. Continuation of Export Control Regulations (Aug. 17, 2001)

            10. Declaration of National Emergency by Reason of Certain Terrorist Attacks (Sept. 14, 2001)

            11. Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism (Sept. 23, 2001)

            12. Blocking Property of Persons Undermining Democratic Processes or Institutions in Zimbabwe (Mar. 6, 2003)

            13. Protecting the Development Fund for Iraq and Certain Other Property in Which Iraq has an Interest (May 22, 2003)

            14. Blocking Property of Certain Persons and Prohibiting the Export of Certain Goods to Syria (May 11, 2004)

            15. Blocking Property of Certain Persons Undermining Democratic Processes or Institutions in Belarus (Jun. 16, 2006)

            16. Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Oct. 27, 2006)

            17. Blocking Property of Persons Undermining the Sovereignty of Lebanon or Its Democratic Processes and Institutions (Aug. 1, 2007)

            18. Continuing Certain Restrictions with Respect to North Korea and North Korean Nationals (Jun. 26, 2008)

            19. Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in Somalia (Apr. 12, 2010)

            20. Blocking Property and Prohibiting Certain Transactions Related to Libya (Feb. 25, 2011)

            21. Blocking Property of Transnational Criminal Organizations (Jul. 25, 2011)

            22. Blocking Property of Persons Threatening the Peace, Security, or Stability of Yemen (May 16, 2012)

            23. Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine (Mar. 6, 2014)

            24. Blocking Property of Certain Persons With Respect to South Sudan (Apr. 3, 2014)

            25. Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in the Central African Republic (May 12, 2014)

            26. Blocking Property and Suspending Entry of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Venezuela (Mar. 9, 2015)
            27. Blocking the Property of Certain Persons Engaging in Significant Malicious Cyber-Enabled Activities (Apr. 1, 2015)

            28. Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Burundi (Nov. 23, 2015)
            How in the ******* are virtually all of those "national emergencies" to the US or threatening the US? I'd say by comparison, a quarter million plus people illegally entering the US every year is a far bigger crisis to the US than most of the crap on that list. Yet, a bunch of ex-bureaucrats and politicians are whining that Trump doesn't have a national emergency on the Southwest border?


            Given the list above, maybe Trump should have declared the following instead:

            Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions by Persons Found to be within the territory of the United States illegally

            Bet that would have had the Left and Democrats go hair on fire big time. Imagine that you have to produce proof of citizenship to wire money out of the United States... That would definitely have gotten the Democrats in a foam-at-the-mouth frenzy of lunatic screaming.
