The gathering Democratic judicial storm to block Donald Trump's Border. @AdamJWhitedc, @HooverInst, @AdLawCenter

Adam White, research Fellow, Hoover, & George Mason Center for the Study of the Administrative State; in re: President Trump’s obtaining funds to build the wall. Democrats setting a precedent to start immediately to challenge this in the courts? Federal trial judges as of recently do this; there’s always been Constitutional disagreement on this; it's the immediacy that’s new. Courts have tended to avoid an exclusively policy-laden dispute; here, if the president uses emergency powers to begin bldg the wall, it’ll affect private parties incl landowners on the border. . . . Supreme Court pushed back against the Ninth Circuit. Is Trump different in the arrogance of his opposition? Yes, and he presents himself that way. He flouts presidential conventions, so courts may not afford him the conventional deference. There becomes a real risk to our presidential system; we need to respect institutions almost no matter what.
