Engel Statement on President Trump’s Proposed National Emergency Declaration at the Border

Washington D.C.—Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement:

“This declaration of a national emergency at the border is a farce. There is no emergency and there never has been, just fear mongering from a President desperate to deliver on a ludicrous campaign promise. This maneuver sets a dangerous precedent—a president creating a controversy out of thin air to get what he wants. It will be challenged in courts and challenged by Democrats in the House.”
