Donald Trump confident over his emergency declaration - TNBC USA

The US President Donald had declared a national emergency to fund a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico against which a case was filed by 16 U.S states who demanded the dismissal of his proposal. On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump has expressed his confidence that he would prevail in the case.
The president and top officials in his administration were accused by the group of states including California and New York of taking away the fund of the taxpayers for their communities to fulfill a promise from his 2016 campaign to suppress illegal immigration and the supply of drugs.
In the Oval Office Trump told the reporters unsurprisingly over the state’s challenge that “I think, in the end, we’re going to be very successful with the lawsuit, it’s an open-and-closed case.”
On Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union has filed their own lawsuit in a U.S. District Court in California, alleging that “Trump disregarded the will of Congress with his emergency declaration.”
Opposition parties have criticized Trump’s decision as unconstitutional. After Congress had declined to give him the $5.7 billion that Trump wanted to build parts of the barrier this year, he declared the national emergency under a 1976 law.
California, Colorado, Delaware, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Virginia, and Michigan are the states who joined forces for the lawsuit.
In the White House Rose Garden, last week, while making the announcement Trump predicted the legal challenges as he said, “We need strong borders. We have to stop drugs and crime and criminals and human trafficking. And we have to stop all of those things that a strong wall will stop.”
