No Easy Day: Trying to make Congress actually work for U.S.

UPDATE: 

Migrant Caravan Swells to 12,000 at Mexico’s Southern Border

The ranks of a new Central American migrant caravan reportedly grew in size to more than 12,000 as of Friday. The caravan is now heading to Mexico’s southern border. Officials originally estimated the caravan’s size at about 2,000. Mexico now claims the caravan’s population swelled to over 12,000 migrants, according to local media and Breitbart Texas sources.

Although the Mexican government is encouraging members of the caravan to remain in Mexico to work, it is believed that most of the Central American migrants intend to head to the U.S. border and attempt to cross into the United States.

Trump says he will declare national emergency if issues are not resolved by mid Feb.

President Donald Trump says he will declare a national emergency to build his U.S.-Mexico border wall if there is no deal with Congress by mid-February.

Trump agreed Friday to end a partial government shutdown and reopen shuttered agencies for three weeks so both sides can continue negotiating over Trump's demand for billions of dollars to build his long-promised wall.

Asked how confident he was of reaching a deal by the Feb. 15 deadline, Trump said, "If we can't do that then ... obviously we're going to do the emergency."

Declaring a national emergency would allow Trump to bypass Congress and use existing money to start building the wall.

Trump previously floated the idea of declaring a national emergency. But he held off, saying he wanted to pursue a deal with Congress.

    President Trump is trying to force Congress to own the border issue with him and in the name of the American people .. fight for our sovereignty. If that actually happened, it would be a powerful signal of national strength for all to see .. boosting every aspect of America influence across the world.

    But we know the bitter truth – The Democrats are traitors who hate the idea American greatness and want crime, drugs, disease, gangs and endless welfare for illegals inflicted on U.S. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3f8adcdd32114047edc6f534f5243d7bb69dbfd28defbbc091e7b51fa5168d51.jpg

    They’ll use these scorched earth tactics in an attempt to defeat Trump 2020 .. which is the overriding mission of the fanatical donkey party and of their state media / Hollywood co-conspirators.
