President Trump May Have Authority To Build Wall

This is Day Five of the partial federal government shutdown.  24/7 News Source reports the President said the shutdown will continue until an agreement is reached on money for a border wall. I am glad the President is drawing a red line in the sand. For the last thirty years we have not had meaningful border security action, the time is now.

 It looks to me like the Democrats are not going to approve the money that is necessary for the wall; that is short-sighted. I believe that President Trump has the unilateral authority to allocate the money in the name of national security.  I hope that he tests that authority and goes ahead and gets this done.
