Pentagon Preparing To Build Wall, Leftists Preparing To Sue

Open-borders Democrats must be getting nervous.

Yesterday, during his visit to the border in McAllen, Texas, President Trump said he will declare a national emergency so he can build a wall to protect the country from the ongoing illegal-alien invasion.

Today, USA Today and the Washington Post reported that the Pentagon is preparing to build that wall.

And 25 percent of the federal government remains closed because Democrats will not provide wall money in appropriations bills.

Trump has repeatedly warned that he would build the border wall on his own, using his emergency powers if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer don’t come to their senses.

“I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency,” Trump told reporters in McAllen yesterday. “The lawyers have so advised me. I’m not prepared to do that yet, but if I have to, I will.”

He said the same thing on Fox talker Sean Hannity’s program last night, and has already ordered the military to prepare to build.

“The Department of Defense is reviewing available authorities and funding mechanisms to identify options to enable border barrier construction,” USA Today reported, quoting a Pentagon spokesman. “As there has not been such a declaration made, it would be inappropriate to comment further on those efforts.”

That’s one reason, most likely, the commander of the Army Corps of Engineers went to the border with Trump. The emergency declaration, the newspaper reported, would permit the corps “to design barriers and allow contracts to build them.”

According to the Post, the Corps of Engineers would use $13.9 billion in unexpended disaster money. Trump told the Corps “to determine how fast contracts could be signed and whether construction could begin within 45 days,” the Post reported. And aside from diverting disaster money, “the military construction budget is also being looked at as a potential source for unspent funds.”
