Breaking, Judge Issues Decision on Border Wall, Presidential Power Case
A federal judge in Washington D.C. has rejected House Democrat’s effort to block the President’s use of emergency powers to provide some funding for construction of the wall on our southern border, as Axios reports: “This is a case about whether one chamber of Congress has the “constitutional means” to conscript the Judiciary in a political turf war with the President over the implementation of legislation. … [W]hile the Constitution bestows upon Members of the House many powers, it does not grant them standing to hale the Executive Branch into court claiming a dilution of Congress’s legislative authority. The Court therefore lacks jurisdiction to hear the House’s claims and will deny its motion.”Judge Trevor McFadden McFadden added: “To be clear, the Court does not imply that Congress may never sue the Executive to protect its powers.” But he argues that House Democrats do not, in this case, overcome the burden to establish it has standing in its lawsuit. This seems like excellent news and it appears the judge put the Constitution ahead of any partisan concerns.
