action to protect its residents natural resources and economic interests john hendren has more from washington d.c. president donald trump faces his biggest challenge yet in the effort to build a wall along the u.s. border with mexico that is because sixteen states on monday filed a suit in the u.s. federal court asking the court to stop the president from moving forward with spending money based on his declaration of an emergency on the southern border they have a couple of reasons for that challenge the first they say is that the president does not control spending congress does under the u.s. constitution the argument that is likely to made be made on the president's side is that congress delegated some of that authority to the president under an one nine hundred seventy six law called the national emergencies act with those states also say that they will be using the president's word against him he said i didn't need to do this but i just wanted to do it faster and those states say that they are
7:03 am
hurt because they are losing money for law enforcement military and drug interdiction and military construction and the case is likely to go to the u.s. supreme court the u.s. district court in california where it will first be heard has often overturned president trump's arguments including on such things as immigration it is possible he will be blocked from this spending but it is unclear whether this case will take weeks months or possibly even longer john fredericks is a syndicated radio talk show host and a member of the trump twenty twenty campaign advisory board he says the president's declaration is justified. well this is an emergency and the present is ultimately going to be successful it's securing about eight billion additional dollars towards the barrier in the wall that he's advocated for along the southern border of the united states this is a frivolous lawsuit brought by the six democratic states that basically want an
7:04 am
open border situation so they can have additional people commit to the united states under documented illegal and eventually turn into democratic voters that's what this argument is about everybody sees through it it might get a state in the ninth district which is a very liberal set of judges out of san francisco what makes its way up to the supreme court of the united states which is inevitable i think it will get fast tracked this the president is going to be successful and he's going to be able to take those funds and continue to build the wall and this is going to go right into the twenty twenty campaign that's going to be in the number one issue on everyone's minds the amount of illegal immigration crossings with these caravans coming up is increased dramatically we have gangs we have violence we have drugs that the policy
7:05 am
analyst bill schneider says many americans disagree with comes to assessment of the border situation. the president claims that they are carriers of the border they're infiltrating the united states the word he used was invading the united states for the evidence suggests that most of the people who come to the border are asylum seekers they're not seeking to invade the united states they're seeking refuge in the united states because when they do get a career if they do get across the border the first thing they do is go up to a border agent and say i'm here i'm in the united states i'm seeking asylum that's not quite an invasion so the definition of the emergency is going to be a very difficult problem for the courts to work out the president claims it is a threat to our national security but most americans would not agree with that they don't see it as a genuine crisis i'd say that most americans see the issues on the border as a problem but not quite a crisis the president says it's an emergency he has the power to do that the
7:06 am
courts are going to have to decide whether this is really a national emergency or not but the president does have that power meanwhile a forty five year old mexican migrant has died in u.s. border patrol custody in texas and the report said the past seven who hasn't yet been identified was admitted to hospital on february third suffering liver and heart problems it's the said death in u.s. border patrol custody in as many months to cause a mother and children died in hospital in december to illegally crossing into the united states those cases true widespread condemnation. well trump is continuing to ramp up the pressure on embattled venezuelan president nicolas maduro in a speech to the venezuelan community in florida he called on the country's military to throw its weight behind opposition leader why don't and you got to go reports from miami. the crowd at florida international university was invite only and most were venezuelans eager for a change in a country many have fled in
7:07 am
a wide ranging speech president trump said venezuela's path to democracy was irreversible and he had a simple message for the country's military leaders the eyes of the entire world are upon you. today. every day and every day in the future you cannot hide from the choice that now confronts you you can choose to accept president riders' jenner's or for amnesty to live your life in peace with your families or your countrymen president ride-a does not seek retribution against you and neither do we outside students gathered to watch the show their support or protests what some see as unnecessary interference but for those who have a close affiliation with venezuela trumps message resonate today there's no food there's people eating dogs and there's even cases where like people go to the zoo and like economy. is horrible so they need to be something done especially since

the recent elections this the potential of people deciding that like they don't want to mean they want change it's a lot of countries around the world are saying hey this is an elf it's a dictatorship but there's nothing democratic about what happened in venezuela and the past twenty years and it should be called out as so instrumental in trying to push to remove nicolas maduro is florida senator marco rubio he just returned from a trip to the colombian border where humanitarian aid is being blocked by the venezuelan authorities what is happening here today what is happening in venezuela is a manmade crisis of epic proportions not caused by a natural disaster but by manmade one of a criminal regime that is willing to starve and kill its own people before it gets the power. it's clear that the trumpet ministration is ramping up pressure on nicolas maduro but the president also railed against an ideology he sees as an evil force across the americas socialism by its very nature. does not respect borders it does not respect boundaries or the sovereign rights of its
7:09 am
storages the president's speech here is being seen in two distinct ways for example venezuelans desperate for change it's a genuine effort to end what many see as a brutal dictatorship for others this was trump on the campaign trail keen to win over florida's latin voters and label his democratic opponents as socialists by the way there's a lot at stake for the people of venezuela and gallacher al-jazeera miami florida well just after president spoke in miami president nicolas maduro hit back accusing trump of trying to give orders to a foreign nation's military. they want to enslave us that's the truth today trump was giving orders attention generals listen trump is giving orders again to our armed forces who does he think he is the commander in chief. and hundreds of people have rallied in support of president nicolas maduro outside the u.s.
