Tuesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin called out the Republicans in the House and the Senate for capitulating to the liberal arguments that presidents should not use the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.
Levin pointed out that the act, which has been used over 50 times in the past, is perfectly constitutional and allows Congress the chance to attempt to reverse the president’s decision by a simple majority in both houses, which the president may then veto.
“He might be the first president since 1976 not to use the National Emergencies Act of 1976,” Levin said.
“What alternatives do Mitch McConnell and these so-called conservatives have, these pseudo-conservatives? What’s their proposal? They have no proposal — they have no idea whatsoever. They’re just shooting spitballs.”
Though rumors have been circulating of a deal between the Democrats and the Republicans in Congress over the border issue, Levin said he doubted anything good could come out of it.
“I do not trust McConnell. You know they’re going to run around: ‘A deal in our time, peace in our time!’ like Neville Chamberlain. You watch: If there’s some deal, it’s gonna be a deal mostly you’re not gonna like. Waving it around: ‘See that? It does work! See that? There is bipartisanship.’ And you hear Schumer continue to say, ‘We might get a deal if the president stays out of it.’ The president stays out of it? He represents one branch of the federal government. He’s in charge of the border. He’s in charge of national security. He’s in charge of immigration, according to the Supreme Court when Obama was president. But he should stay out of it, you see. Because they love dealing with McConnell and the French Republicans,” Levin said.
