Democrats are eyeing a lawsuit challenging President Trump if he attempts to circumvent Congress and declare a national emergency to build a border wall.

The legal strategy remains in the theoretical stages, since Trump has so far declined to take such a step — and it’s unclear if he ever will.

But on day 21 of the partial government shutdown — a closure prompted by an impasse over border wall funding — Democrats are prepping for the possibility that Trump will try to sidestep Congress and divert other funds to new wall construction by proclaiming the situation a formal emergency.

  1. If we are living without 25% of the government not functioning maybe we don’t need those 25% of the government. Maybe other parts of the government offices can pick up the duties of the 25% that are not operating and look how much money can we save on useless personal and government offices that are just wasted money. Some offices can do 2 things at a time instead of specializing on just one thing. Maybe just saying?????
