We have an Attorney General (Dana Nessel), one of 16 Dem AG's, who is a flat out liar! The AG's Spokesperson states that the POTUS Emergency Declaration will harm the Michigan National Guard! THAT IS A LIE, and this is the AG's POLITICS IN ACTION! No matter how you feel about the wall, we should all agree that our elected officials should not be playing politics with our State's tax dollars! #PutMichiganfirst! ... See MoreSee Less

Trump already declared in October of 2017 that the Opiod Crisis is a National Public Health Emergency 🚨... Now as an Attorney General Who should have at least 1/2 a brain does it make sense to toss billions of our tax dollars at the “problem” and not the “source” ... Why do we spend $145 Million in tax payer funds for NARCAN to wake up those who overdose? Just so they can go buy more drugs because it’s still flowing in through a porous Border? Shouldn’t the border security and drug addiction rehab and reform go hand in hand and be considered the same emergency? This is equivalent to letting the water run into your 🛀 bath without stopping the drain... sooner or later you’re going to run out of hot water 💦
I’m very upset about this Dana Nessel. How can this be happening in Michigan. I’m just sick about it. How can we have hope for this state in the future. She definitely is showing her partisanship right off the bat.
Called the attorney general this morning and got a recording that cut me off after about ten seconds. All we can do now is make her a one term mistake
If a democrats mouth is open a lie is coming out of it.
Sent her an email today. Doubt it will make a difference
BUILD THE WALL
Build the wall
She is pathetic. We should sue her for putting our safety at jeopardy.
Why is it that those elected by the people of the state, suddenly think that THEY are the only power, and the rest of us are superfluous.
Why do they all lie!!!!!!
Shame on Michigan!!!
I don’t support Democrat policies or fake national emergencies. But, how is it a lie? Trump openly plans on redirecting 8 Billion in federal funds to his wall.
We let liars get elected. No good will come of these Democrats.
Would current Michigan AG have filed lawsuit when Obama signed National Emergency order for Flint water "crisis"? Probably not.
The funds for the wall are coming from various sources: first phase will be from forfeiture funds, then appropriated funds, then the National Emergency funds.
By the time the National Emergency funds are needed the wall will be progressing very nicely and all the nonsense lawsuits like this one will have made their path through the courts. As Trump told us - there will be a series of favorable-unfavorable rulings until case reaches US Supreme Court where a favorable ruling is justifiability expected.
President Trump said Friday he is declaring a national emergency on the southern border, tapping into executive powers in a bid to divert billions toward construction of a wall even as he plans to sign a funding package that includes just $1.4 billion for border security.
Republicans knew this a long time ago! Here is an article from 2016, showing that we have just wasted 2 years of time, money and staff chasing a progressive lie. We wish the Liberal Democrats in power would love our nation more than they love power!
The waste of money and time are terrible. There are two things worse than that about this witch hunt: 1. It has slowed the important work that the people want the government to do to clean out some of the corruption in Washington. 2. Worse still, it allowed evil and corrupt people to continue to imprison people without cause. Some of these people have been broken completely through solitary confinement.
MILLIONS COULD HAVE GONE TO NATIONAL SECURITY INCLUDING THE BORDER.
God bless president Trump!!
It’s from 2016. But true obviously.
The whole world knows Hillary and Vladdy are doing the nasty
How about prosecuting All of those in the FBI and DOJ that brought the Hillary fake dossier to the Fisa Courts.
