What if Most of America Did Not Want


a wall built along the southern border of the United States?


And imagine if again a large majority of people opposed the inhumane policies regarding

immigration and those seeking asylum there.


Now, think about the Constitution and the duties and powers assigned to each branch. The Congress passes the federal budget and thus has the final say about money.


In fact: “The framers were unanimous that Congress, as the representatives of the people, should be in control of public funds—not the President or executive branch agencies.”


With all the debates and compromises the Founding Fathers faced, this was not a moot issue.


So back to our imaginary country where the President usurps this power from the Congress to build a wall that most people don’t want to continue a policy that a majority of citizens oppose.


What could make it worse?


Finally, the Executive Branch, desperate to find funding for said wall, wants to take the money from military pay and pensions. How does that sound?


Because it is happening now.
