"There are plenty of real emergencies to invest our tax money in: Budgets, appropriations are moral documents and we have a moral crisis here, a crisis rooted in white supremacy. Not a fictionalized border crisis, not a fictionalized security risk. We stand up today to say, 'No more!' because our democracy demands it."

"There's a dangerous criminal in the White House and we have to do something about that. President Trump's so-called 'National emergency' is a fabrication and yet another racist and divisive policy coming out of Washington."
Protesters and activists against President Donald Trump's decision to declare a national emergency on the US-Mexico border gathered Monday in New Jersey, calling on the president to stand back.
Chanting, singing and holding banners with messages that read: "Close ICE Jails" and "Stop the Deportation Machine," demonstrators demanded transparency and an end to what the call "yet another racist and divisive policy coming out of Washington."
"We have a moral crisis here, a crisis rooted in white supremacy. Not a fictionalized border crisis, not a fictionalized security risk. We stand up today to say, 'No more!' because our democracy demands it," said Kelly Quirk of SOMA Action, a community group representing members from various parts of New Jersey.
SOMA Action was joined by New Jersey Citizen Action, Make the Road New Jersey and several other local grassroots organizations at the Federal Building in Newark.
The non-profit advocacy group MoveOn.org says more than 10,000 protesters are expected at 250 events in cities and towns across the country, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Houston.
Trump declared a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday in a move to secure more money for his long-promised wall.
