Ann Coulter Says Trump Can Build the Wall Without Permission from Congress – So Why Doesn’t He?

Ann Coulter says that President Trump does not need permission from Congress to build the wall because he is the Commander in Chief and has control over all of the agencies under the executive branch, including the Department of Defense and Homeland Security, and the funds available for these agencies are more than adequate for the job. She says defending US borders is the #1 job of the Commander in Chief, and that is most of what the military did for the first 100 years.  “We weren’t going around remaking the rest of the world. It was the military building forts on our border. Defending American borders is the number one job of the Commander in Chief.” -GEG

From The Daily Caller:

“Pull out your pocket Constitution and see who the commander in chief is, who has all the executive branch power in his hands,” said Coulter. “He has the Department of Defense. He has Homeland Security. I mean, if we were suddenly attacked by China, he wouldn’t sit around — or North Korea — he wouldn’t sit around saying ‘Well, I would like to respond, but Congress just will not write that bill.’ He’d say ‘No, I am the commander in chief, I have the power to an defend against an invasion. We’re being invaded.’”

Colter added that other than entitlements, “90 percent of all federal money is in the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, and this [border security] is both homeland security and defense.”

“Did he have to get a special bill when we bombed Syria?” asked Coulter. “By mistake, it turned out. No, obviously there are discretionary funds there, and they don’t need to be spent just to send off bombs to make Boeing even richer than they already are for no purpose at all.”

“Of course you can build a wall,” she added later. “That is most of what the military did for the first 100 years. We weren’t going around remaking the rest of the world. It was the military building forts on our border. Defending American borders is the number one job of the commander in chief.”

Doesn’t anyone remember this? The fence was already bought and paid for under Bush. SECURE FENCE ACT OF 2006. Ratified by Congress, signed into law in 2006. (Oct 26, 2006 signed by G. Bush) Supported and voted for by Dems & Repubs. DHS received 1.2 Billion to fund the wall that was never built. Where is the money? So why was this already planned in, voted for, funded but not built wall used to agitate the people? “This bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders more secure.
