    it would not be a win-win for a border wall. He is not even getting a border wall. By DHS estimates, this amount of money would get about 200 or so miles of wall. A third of the border has barriers, but that would not make a big dent in that. It would not curb the invasion he is talking about.

It'll be much better than no walls like the democrats desire.

    And declaring a national emergency because you cannot legislatively win (as Trump admitted to reporters) pretty much sets up any president after to do nearly whatever they want to abuse the crap out of the power.

Your previous boy already set that precedent.  What goes around comes around.

As a candidate, President Obama expressed misgivings about executive power. After the 2010 mid-term elections, however, it became clear that Congress would not go along with the president’s sweeping regulatory agenda. So he pledged: “Where they won’t act, I will.”

He vowed to pursue “audacious” executive action in his final term.
And in his January 2014 State of the Union Address, President Obama promised to “wherever and whenever” possible “take steps without legislation.”
