Bypassing Congress (National Security Call 2)

In an attempt to bypass Congress, President Trump has announced that he will declare a national emergency to fulfill a campaign pledge and build a wall on the southern border, all allegedly in the name of national security. Join us for a discussion of what this means, what litigation might be possible, and whether or not this will actually protect our national security.
