Rand Paul announced in an op-ed that he just couldn’t support President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration.
All of a sudden, the Senator from Kentucky just can’t do this when in the past he sat on his hands. Why now? Why the sudden effort to claim he wants to do the right thing?
Clinton declared a National Emergency to protect Burmese
Bush declared a National Emergency to protect Belarusians
Obama declared a National Emergency to protect Burundians
But Congress has a problem with Trump declaring a National Emergency to protect Americans?
Isn’t it true that it’s not the national emergency that’s changed your mind, it’s who is in the Oval Office? Remember when Obama declared a national emergency (see video below) at the southern border in 2014 and asked for several billion dollars?
You didn’t grandstand then!
While Congress and several Presidents did nothing in the past, the illegal population has skyrocketed. Congress had a majority for two years but did nothing to change catch and release, anchor baby citizenship, chain migration and sanctuary cities. We need the wall, but there is so much more to be done to secure our border.
Just one sector of our border is getting 1,000 illegal entries a day. That’s 7,000 a week! How is this NOT an emergency?

So Rand Paul decides to stand firm against our sovereignty? How can Senator Paul consider this a noble cause?
There have been 30 national emergencies declared in recent years according to the Washington Post. There are 28 currently active national emergencies. Obama declared 12 and Bush declared 13. Was Senator Paul outspoken on those too? The answer is NO!
We have drugs, criminals, rapists, and human trafficking happening at our border but Senator Paul doesn’t consider this a danger to Americans?
HERE’S OBAMA IN 2014 DECLARING A NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND ASKING FOR BILLIONS:
Michelle Malkin nailed it when she said the sanctuary cities have metastasized and BOTH parties are to blame.
Malkin can add Rand Paul to her list of Republicans who are putting LEGAL Americans last!

The Senate is voting soon on the fundamental question of whether or not the situation at the southern border constitutes an emergency.

IF THIS ISN’T AN EMERGENCY…WHAT IS?
