    POINT: Donald Trump's Emergency Declaration is an Attack on Democracy COUNTERPOINT: President is Forced Into Declaring a National Emergency IUbQr

    Welcome to POINT -- COUNTERPOINT.  On the heels of Donald Trump's signing of the spending bill funding the government and averting another shutdown, Trump announced that he will declare a national emergency to get the wall built on the southern border.  We have two opinions posted in USA TODAY.  After the two articles, you decide which side of the argument you are working with.

    NOTE: The opinions in these articles are the authors, as published by the source, and do not necessarily represent the views of Bethea's Byte.

    President Trump has officially declared an "emergency" on the southern border so that he can build his wall.

    I won't go into all the reasons why this emergency is bogus or why, even after declaring an emergency, he still won't be able to build his wall. Instead, I want to discuss why willfully damaging our democratic institutions for a little short-term political gain is a very bad, very un-American, idea.

    If there is any emergency at all here, it's a political one. President Trump felt no pressing need for the wall for the last two years and nothing of emergency proportions on the ground has changed. What has changed is control of the House. When Republicans lost their unified control of Congress, President Trump lost any chance whatsoever of fulfilling his "Build the wall!" promise that his base loves so much.

    COUNTERPOINT

    From USA TODAY

    Rep. Jody Hice (R-Georgia) wrote:
    POINT: Donald Trump's Emergency Declaration is an Attack on Democracy COUNTERPOINT: President is Forced Into Declaring a National Emergency BBTBPRh

    There is no question that the United States is facing both a humanitarian and national security crisis on our southern border. Just think about this: 2,000 illegal and inadmissible migrants arrive at our border every day; our immigration courts have a backlog of more than 800,000 cases; and in the past two years alone, Customs and Border Protection has arrested thousands of criminals at the southern border.

    Unfortunately, Democrats have repeatedly denied the magnitude of this crisis. Blinded by hatred of the president, they have refused to negotiate in good faith — choosing political expediency over the safety and security of the American people.

    Calling that shameful would be an understatement, especially given that many of the Democrats who are the loudest in opposition today have advocated for these same measures under former presidents.

    Now the opinions are left to you.  Which way do you see this.  Do you side with the Point or Counterpoint.  Vote and drop in your commentary.  I look forward to reading and responding to you.

    Point, definitely. Unlawful border crossings have fallen heavily since the year 2000 - so, while it's fair to say the continued existence of illegal immigrants is a problem, it's certainly no emergency:

    https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/624/cpsprodpb/839F/production/_105659633_border-nc.png

    I will, however, acknowledge that all of Trump's options were bad here:

    1) Sign the compromise bill, with no funding for a wall. Here, Trump angers his own base.
    2) Declare a national emergency. Here, Trump keeps his base, but angers everyone else.
    3) Refuse to sign the bill, leading to a second shutdown. We've seen how that ended.

    Thing is, that's a corner that Trump's backed himself into, really.

    Unless you're a devoted, dyed-in-the-wool Trumper, someone with common sense knows that the wall is not a case to declare a national emergency. I make THAT statement whether you're Democrat or Republican.
