Yuge! Congressman Mark Meadows Wants To Use 10 USC 274/284 For The Border

By

Republican Congressman Mark Meadows said President Trump and Republicans should pursue other options to fortify our border.

Meadows suggest using 10 USC 274/284, which would allow the construction of fencing without congressional approval.

“Democrats have made it extremely clear this shutdown is all about opposing Trump for them. It’s time to pursue other options. 10 USC 274/284 would allow for fence construction without a national emergency. Protect our communities, build the wall, and forget unreasonable Democrats.
