BREAKING: Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham Calls on Trump to Use Emergency Powers to Fund Border Wall

On Thursday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called for President Trump to use emergency powers to build the wall.

“Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on Wall/Barrier funding – even if the government were to be reopened – virtually ends congressional path to fund Wall/Barrier,” Graham said.

“Time for President Trump to use emergency powers to build Wall/Barrier,” Graham added.

President Trump has done everything possible to negotiate with Speaker Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, however; the two Democrat leaders refuse to work with him on border security.

The President addressed the nation this week from the Oval Office and articulately laid out the many reasons why the US-Mexico border must be secured with a barrier.

Tens of thousands of Americans have died at the hands of illegal aliens.

“How much more American blood must be shed until Congress does its job?” the President asked during his Oval Office address Tuesday night.

The President met with Pelosi and Schumer again Wednesday which ended up being a total waste of time, according to Trump.

“Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!” the President said in a tweet.

On Thursday, the President traveled to McAllen, Texas where he had a round table discussion which included Reggie Singh, the brother of slain Cpl. Ronil Singh.
