Good News for Trump’s Wall

After what may seem like endless battles for border security, President Trump has finally been awarded some news that could hold the key to victory.

Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood explained while at a House Armed Services Committee hearing that not only does Trump have the authority to build a wall along the border, he doesn’t need to declare a national emergency to do it.

Here is some of the dialog between Rood and republican Morris Brooks:

Mo Brooks: Does 10 U.S.C. § 284 as you understand it, require the declaration of a national emergency before it is implemented?

John Rood: No.

Mo Brooks: It does not?

Rood: No.

Brooks: Has President Trump, to your knowledge, ever used 10 U.S.C § 284 to direct the military to build the wall that is necessary for border security?

Rood: No, not to my knowledge, Congressman.

Brooks: If President Trump were to direct the Pentagon and the United States military pursuant to 10 U.S.C § 284 to build such barriers as are necessary to secure our southern border from drug trafficking and international crime cartels would the United States military obey that order?

Rood: If we judge it to be a lawful order, yes sir. And I assume it would be.

It seems a little odd that no one would have offered up this information sooner, given that the dispute lead to the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. 

Still, if this is truly the case then it’s time Trump gave the word.

  1. OMG!! Another loop hole for this president to find to go thru w/ a wasteful and inefficient, ineffective wall.. I really had hope that the American people cared about protecting the country as a whole and not a single wall for the sole purpose of putting the name Trump on it, his biggest mistake.. He’s made some bad decisions but this one forces the Americans to pay for a wall that he continuously stated Mexico was gonna pay for. If he’s actually able to do it, that money is gonna come from other important programs including protecting us from terrorist, drug cartels, human trafficking.. They will find a way to get thier product thru.. There is a better way but Trump refuses to acknowledgeanythimg else but that stupid wall…

    1. Regina I don’t know about you but I’m guessing you are a democrat who would vote on Anything that
      our President was behind. Your dislike of our President has clouded your reasoning and common sense. A wall is not only to help keep out illegals,
      drugs, and gang members but to protect the ones we love here in our own homeland.

  2. Nancy polosi , is a disgrace to the American people , she does not brlieve in Jesus Christ , Her 100 million $ is her God, shame she does not have one caring bone in her body for the American people. I think she has Alzheimer’s

  3. Finally someone had the backbone to give the president a way to build the wall without having to fight peloser and shitster for it, people can’t expect the president to know every law that is legal about what he can do that is why he is supposed to have people to look up these laws and advise him, there are too many obscure laws on the books to know them all

  4. A wall is neither moral or immoral. Nancy Pelosi is immoral for wasting taxpayers money taking her family on expensive trips using military aircraft. I hope President Trump will put a stop to that selfish woman using taxpayer money for her Washington DC Socializing & Travel Club. She is a disgrace to our country. It is obvious that she only cares about herself and her family. I wouldn’t vote for anyone that would allow that stupid twit, Pelosi, to tell them how to vote. Pelosi is the fool who said about Obamacare, “We have to pass it so we’ll know what’s in it.” You’d think people would realize she must not be too bright after she made that comment.
    Yes, President Trump should go ahead and build the wall and solve the border and immigration problem without Democrats. Then history will give President Trump all of the credit. Democrats seem to only care about playing political games.
