alone down in jordan this is obviously a lawyer from coming up venezuela's president nicolas maduro explains to al-jazeera why he won't let us get into his country. protesters on the haiti remain defiant and say they won't stop demonstrating until the president steps down. and skipping school to save the planet look at the grow. an youth movement that's raising awareness of climate change. the u.s. president has declared a national emergency to access billions of dollars for his controversial border wall senior democrats and republicans have accused trump of a gross abuse of power the democrat controlled house judiciary committee is already investigating saying it raises serious constitutional issues committee i'll get has more from washington d.c. . fulfilling a twenty sixteen presidential campaign promise in a most i know conventional way i'm going to be signing a. national emergency. after the us congress refused this week to approve
president trump's request for five point seven billion to build a wall along the u.s. southern border trouble circumvented the legislative body by declaring a national emergency truck now has access to eight billion dollars already approved by congress to build three hundred seventy six kilometers of wall to stop illegal immigration even though the white house won't say exactly where we want to stop drugs from coming into our country we want to stop criminals and gangs from coming into our country his democratic opponents in congress say the crisis is manufactured and motivated by racism there's concern about this february tenth tribe tweet yarg use a wall is needed to stop the influx of forty two million latin americans into the united states something trump says would be
a disaster. opponents are vowing to overturn what they say is the president's power grab and defend congress's constitutional authority to decide how taxpayer money is spent through legislation and in the courts but trump is pushing back arguing other presidents have also made emergency declarations to achieve political goals like president george w. bush made similar declarations after the september eleventh attacks those continue to this day trumps already anticipating legal challenges but he expects to prevail in the courts as he points out he did when his ban on travelers entering the united states from some muslim majority countries was also challenged we will then be sued and they will sue us in the ninth circuit even though it shouldn't be there and we will possibly get a bad ruling and then we'll get another bad ruling and that will end up in the supreme court and hopefully we'll get. a fair shake and while we're in the supreme
court but the legal and legislative challenges will be long and lengthy with presidential campaigning already underway donald trump's attempt to keep twenty sixteen campaign promise has become a twenty twenty presidential campaign issue as well kimberly helped at al jazeera the white house trump has described an invasion of migrants drugs and violence flooding into the u.s. from mexico but his move to build the border walls like to be challenged in court the eagle immigration across the border is at a twenty year low and a wall won't prevent migrants crossing at legal points of entry to request asylum promising the wall will stop the flow of drugs but government data shows eighty to ninety percent of current cocaine and methamphetamine a traffic through official entry points with marijuana being the only exception the president also made bold claims about the country's murder rate saying thousands of lives would be lost if he didn't act but there's little data linking crime to
immigration john hendren joins us live now from washington d.c. john so now that from a signed off on his emergency what happens next i'm just like to be a challenge do you think. well the democrats and other opponents are likely to throw every possible roadblock in front of the president's wall that they can first off as you mentioned the house judiciary committee the house is newly controlled by the other party by democrats is now going to investigate the president the head of that committee representative jerry navl we believe your declaration of emergency shows a reckless disregard for the separation of powers and your responsibilities under the constitution there's definitely going to be hearings that will of course be very public there will also likely be after that legislation that would seek specifically to stop the president from taking this emergency action however that
would have to pass the senate and then a presidential veto so what is likely to happen at the same time is those court challenges there will be outside groups some of which have already announced they'll do that could be some within the congress itself and then other interested parties like the state of california which is it said that it would challenge it as an overreach and the basic problem at the bottom of all this is that the u.s. constitution gives congress the power to spend money that what the president is doing is taking money that congress has already approved and spending it for a purpose that congress has specifically not allowed him to do so this is going to be a big fight and it could last a long time i don't know what sort of political fallout is that likely to be from all of this especially for republicans now and in the future. well republicans are going to have to answer for this because they have largely stepped in lockstep with the president there are some republican voices however that are clearly cognizant of this because they have warned the president that by taking this step he opens
a precedent that republicans will not like if there is a democratic president who is not getting what he wants from president i'm sorry from congress and then decides to declare a national emergency over climate change or gun violence so republicans will have to answer for that and this battle could still be going on in two thousand and twenty when there is a presidential election trump will have to answer for why he has not built that wall if in fact he's been prevented from doing so and other republicans will have to argue that they have done what they can on this front and explain why they took the action they did all right john hendren then washington d.c. john thank you what it was a political science professor at iona college she explains more about the other types of challenges that some could face and we'll have that in a moment but let's move on. because in an interview with al jazeera venezuela's president has accused the u.s.
of trying to destabilize his country nicholas madeira says the u.s. backed opposition has called for bringing aid on its harbor a twenty third is nothing but political theater that he wanted sent it but there were also criticized european nations for supporting u.s. military intervention he says that the u.s. involvement in iraq and libya has achieved nothing but death and destruction. i think that some europeans made a mistake when they supported the american war in iraq can you ask any of the coalition countries was it necessary to intervene militarily in iraq and divide it and kill millions of its people i think they also made a mistake when they bombed libya and killed more than one hundred thousand civilian candies errors be corrected i think they made mistakes in their destructive policy approach in syria and are making more mistakes with venezuela.
this does not happen and will not happen any material that comes from outside the country must be subject to certain conditions such as inspection and taxi in all countries whether by air sea or land and then there will be no problems there for the trickle presentation they're attempting on february twenty third will not happen. after conducting a dialogue with the opposition in the dominican republic we agreed to hold the early presidential election in the first four months of last year after which part of the opposition withdrew and did not sign the agreement and eventually it was agreed on may twentieth these elections were conducted according to the law and the constitution and with international and local observers ten million voters participated in the elections and eighty six percent of the voters voted for me therefore the interim legislative elections were done and anything else is just whims an attempt to destabilize the country from the white house. there was lots in
america and it's on the sea and human has more now from. the u.s. state department has confirmed what until now had been rumors and that is that u.s. military aircraft will be bringing some two hundred tons of emergency food and medicine to kuta colombia which is on the border with it is swear that this is part of the supplies that the opposition leader one bible says he will bring into venezuela unfriendly the twenty third defying a prohibition by president nicolas maduro originally while also that it would be some twenty million dollars worth of emergency food and medicine now he says that he will probably be able to collect as much as two hundred million dollars worth this as he sends yet another appeal to venezuela's military which supports president nicolas maduro telling them they have eight more days to quote decide on whether to defend or or support the people in the constitution of in his way a law or defend a dictatorship. time for a short break here and al-jazeera when we come back india bourne's of
