58 Ex-National Security Officials Denounce Trump's National Emergency Declaration Over Border

As lawmakers in Congress decide whether or not to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration to build a wall at the southern border, ??The list of people who oppose the decision continues to grow.

??Now, according to the Washington Post, a group of 58 former senior national security officials are denouncing the move in a new statement.

??It’s a bipartisan group that includes former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.??The statement reads in part quote, “Under no plausible assessment of the evidence is there a national emergency today that entitles the president to tap into funds appropriated for other purposes to build a wall at the southern border.” ??“I’m going to be signing a national emergency.” ??The president declared the national emergency after Congress did not approve of the $5.7 billion he was looking for to build the wall.

??The former National Security officials laid out arguments including the fact, according to Homeland Security stats, that illegal border crossings are at nearly 40-year lows.

??The group also argues that the declaration will quote, “undermine U.S. national security and foreign policy interests”??
