Since I watch NO cable news, I have a question.

Are ANY Republicans out there supporting the President's position?  Other than maybe Lindsey Graham?

Lily003   Huh

Since most of the action hasn't left the House yet, if any of it gets to the Senate, you'll see pubs supporting POTUS!

There are always some dissidents, just as there are some "old" democrats who don't like what the party has become now.

By all means, go for it and don't keep waiting for congress to support it. He does have the authority and there is a crisis, so build that wall NOW!

The money is already in the military budget. Congress approved the military budget a long time ago, which includes way more than Trump is asking for in discretionary funds which are always set aside to meet any sudden national security emergencies.

Congress can NOT tell Trump how to spend those funds should he declare an emergency and activate military assets to handle said emergency.

   There are other examples:
President Lyndon B. Johnson notifies Alabama’s Governor George Wallace that he will use federal authority to call up the Alabama National Guard in order to supervise a planned civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery.
