45 has done it again. He’s taken another step toward authoritarianism and we have to let him and his GOP enablers know that we won’t stand for it. There is no emergency at the border and he cannot just declare one because Congress doesn’t agree with him. The only real emergency is Trump. We must let the administration know we will not accept a manufactured crisis or an abuse of presidential powers. #FakeEmergency National Indivisible and their allies are asking us to gather at noon on Monday, February 18th to protest yet again. We are encouraging those who have the time to make signs.
