House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged all members of Congress on Wednesday night in a “Dear Colleague” letter to stop President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration related to the southern border by co-sponsoring a privileged resolution of Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro.
According to Pelosi, the resolution would terminate the emergency declaration using a mechanism within the National Emergencies Act (NEA), which will be introduced Friday.
The article goes on to state the following:
Trump declared a national emergency Feb. 15 after Congress allocated $1.375 billion for a wall along the southern border. The declaration gives the president access to $8 billion dollars for the wall. Sixteen states have already filed lawsuits to stop the president from using funding from other projects within the Department of Defense for the construction of the wall.
“All Members take an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution,” Pelosi wrote. “The President’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated. We have a solemn responsibility to uphold the Constitution, and defend our system of checks and balances against the President’s assault.”
