The Latest Trump Says He Wants To Protect The Nation

first_imgThe move is already drawing bipartisan criticism on Capitol Hill and is expected to face rounds of legal challenges. Trump told stories, without providing evidence, of horrific abuse of women being smuggled across the U.S.-Mexico border. He also said the border wall would be needed to battle drug cartels as part of a “virtual invasion” from Mexico. 11:10 a.m.President Donald Trump says many other presidents have declared national emergencies. But the presidents he has cited did not use emergency powers to pay for projects that Congress wouldn’t support. The president declared a national emergency and would find other funds for the wall after expressing unhappiness about a congressional border security deal. A list compiled by the Brennan Center says Clinton declared 17 national emergencies, Bush 13 and Obama 12. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted a photo of Trump signing the declaration Friday in the moments before his scattershot Rose Garden news conference.center_img Emergency declarations by former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton were overwhelmingly for the purpose of addressing crises that emerged abroad. Many blocked foreign interests or terrorist-linked entities from access to funds. Some prohibited certain imports from or investments to countries associated with human rights abuses. Trump said Friday he will use executive powers to bypass Congress, which approved far less money for border barriers than he had sought. Trump plans to siphon billions of dollars from federal military construction and counterdrug efforts for his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall. Families of people killed by illegal immigrants were in attendance at the news conference.

Senate Passes Bill For Fair Liquor License

first_imgThis year, following the release of the legislative audit, the board began to crack down on recreational license renewals, with members saying they have no choice under existing state law. Senator Peter Micciche (R-Soldotna) sponsored the bill: “Eleven business licenses across the state, including the state fair, were at risk of no longer operating. In largely it’s because of the bureaucracy of the ABC Board (Alcohol Beverage Control Board) just deciding they were going to read the statue in a different way.”  Micciche: “Sometimes government moves away from operating with common sense, and that’s when we have to step in.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Senate on Monday passed legislation that will allow the fairs in Alaska to continue selling alcohol. The bill passed in the Senate by 19-0, creates several new liquor license types, including a fair license. The bill now moves onto the Alaska House of Representatives. Photo courtesy of Alaska State Fair Micciche says the bill is in response to a more stringent reading of state law by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. The measure will also allow skiing and snowboarding under the definition of recreational sites, which Micciche said had been traditionally permissible previously.last_img read more
