Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) released the following statement on President Trump preparing to declare a national emergency at the southern border:

“The Trump emergency ranks with the 35-day Trump Shutdown as a low point in this administration,” said Johnson. “Who would have thought he could take us lower than the parade of guilty pleas and convictions of close associates arising from the Mueller investigation? It’s a sad day for the nation when one man can falsely claim there is a national emergency simply to untangle himself from a political problem of his own making. With this declaration, Trump sets a dangerous precedent as he continues his march toward despotism. I ask my Republican colleagues to work with me to prevent the destruction of the delicate balance of power that exists between the legislative and executive branches of government.”
