Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin set straight the media’s claims that it would be unconstitutional for President Donald Trump to use the National Emergencies Act to build a wall to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The president isn’t violating the constitution. He’s not even violating the statute. He’s looking at the statute, he’s looking at the immigration laws, there’s an emergency provision in the immigration law, the Immigration and Naturalization Act, and he’s marrying the two up, which is what he’s supposed to do, because he’s getting advice from really smart lawyers … smarter than the lawyers who are online, popping off. Smarter than the phony lawyers who are on cable TV. Real, serious, constitutional lawyers, not former this and former that,” Levin said.
Levin pointed out that though the media, including some “so-called” conservatives, were quick to call the action “unconstitutional,” they offered no alternative solution.
“They don’t have a solution to any of this. They whine about it, they complain about it, they acknowledge it, but when you have somebody who is actually trying to deal with it, they chop his legs out right from under him. It’s a bad idea ‘politically,’ they say, because it won’t work. Well, maybe it won’t work this time, but maybe it’ll work the next time. You don’t roll over and lie in a fetal position. You have to fight. We have a fighter in the White House,” he said.
“And it’s a damn shame that we cannot unite behind this man when he’s trying to do what’s right for this country — and this IS what’s right for this country.”
“And while all this is going on, while we are distracted by the Left, by the media, as they constantly eat away at the fabric of this country like uncontrollable moths, our enemies organize. Red China, Fascist Russia, Islamo-Nazi Iran, Stalinist North Korea: They build their nukes. They organize, while we have to fight the Democrats.”
