ABSTRACT

[February 15, 2019 Letter to the President of the United States Donald J. Trump]   [open pdf - 7MB]

From the Letter: "As the Chairs and Vice-Chair of the House Judiciary Committee and its Subcommittees, we write to express our alarm over your proclamation 'Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States' and your reassignment of funds approved by Congress for other purposes in order to access certain funds denied to you by Congress for the construction of a border wall. We are particularly troubled in light of your statement today that 'I didn't need to do this, but I would rather do it much faster.' The House Judiciary Committee is commencing an immediate investigation into this matter, which raises both serious constitutional and statutory issues. [...] We believe your declaration of an emergency shows a reckless disregard for the separation of powers and your own responsibilities under our constitutional system."
