Trump's ultimatum: a wall on border with Mexico or imposition of the state of emergency?


In the USA shutdown continues: The White House ceased to pay for water supply, and presidential protection works for free the U.S. President Donald Trump. Photo: Zuma/TASS Donald Trump continues to demand in a categorical form allocation of 5.7 billion dollars on construction of a wall on border with Mexico, refusing to sign the annual budget without this article. The day before the U.S. President went to prove the position to the southern border of the country. Earlier Trump performed with televised address to the nation in which he repeated the thesis again that all illegal immigrants are criminals. According to the border service of the USA, the flow of illegal migrants on border with Mexico for last year increased by 30% in comparison with 2017. However both indicators (397 thousand and 304 thousand) are a historic low. For comparison: in 2000 the same border was crossed illegally 90% more often. Those whom Trump called by "caravan" earlier are children and women to whom the danger in the homeland threatens. At crossing of the border such people submit the application on the status of the refugee, it is legal practice. By new year and this stream was considerably reduced, people illegally get on the territory of the country bypassing check points. The reporters who went to border together with Donald Trump did not notice any visual signs of humanitarian crisis. But there is an obvious crisis in the president's relations with democrats. As Trump said during the trip, it is even simpler to agree with China. It is difficult not to remember how during the meeting with leaders of parliamentary democrats Trump said that this time he will perform "with pride" as the initiator of a stop of work of the government if he does not get the green light to financing of construction of a wall with Mexico. If the president imposes state of emergency now, the wall will be built by military, without waiting for approval of the congress. However in a situation when crisis existence, to put it mildly, is not obvious, such decision can be blocked by vessels, the democratic congressman from Florida, the member of legal committee Houses of Representatives Ted Doych believes: "The president wants to take billions of dollars from fund allocated for restoration of Puerto Rico after a hurricane. He wants to spend this money for performance of the election pledge which has nothing in common with national security". In three weeks after suspension of work of the government of a voice about need of change of a situation began to be distributed on both sides. The leader of democratic minority in the senate Chuck Sumer supported resuming work of all state structures which are not connected with construction of a wall and after to continue negotiations concerning financing of protection of borders. Some republicans led by Lindsay Graham addressed the president too with the offer on the shutdown termination which also included an exception of the agenda immediate assignment for a wall. Meanwhile because of shutdown of 900 thousand government employees of the USA are forced to stay at home. They do not get paid, already now their families met financial difficulties.
