"Mr. President, your declaration of an emergency on the southern border was clearly authorized under the law and consistent with past precedent."

"The National Emergencies Act directly authorizes the President, and gives broad discretionary authority to the President, to identify and respond to emergent circumstances that require a decisive response. And the humanitarian and security crisis we have on the border right now is exactly the kind of emergency that Presidents are permitted to address under the National Emergencies Act."

"In the past 40 years, there have been 59 emergencies declared. And many of these have dealt with political conditions in countries like Burundi, Sierra Leone, Belarus. The crisis that we're dealing with today is right on our doorstep, and it presents a real clear and present danger to the American people. So what you've done from a legal standpoint is solidly grounded in law. And from the standpoint of protecting the American people, it's imperative."
