On Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” during her “Opening Statement” segment, host Jeanine Pirro backed President Donald Trump on his decision to call an emergency order so that he could steer funding to finance a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Pirro called the move on “firm legal ground” and warned of the consequences of not securing the southern U.S. border.

“I can’t imagine that the Supreme Court would not support the declaration of an emergency given the Congress’s repeated failure to act, the president’s repeated attempt to make the Democrats act,” she said. “All these presidents have declared national emergencies. Listen up: I have news for you Doubting Thomases. This president is on firm legal ground. Both the Constitution and Congress have given him the right to declare emergencies as an executive action. Youngstown vs. Ohio, According to Justice Jackson, the president is at his zenith of power here where Congress has delegated to him the authority, and his own authority is at its maximum. He possesses his own right plus all that Congress has delegated.”

“In these circumstances and in these only may he be said to personify a federal sovereignty,” Pirro continued. “It’s real simple, folks. What do you want? Should America be a nation-state? Should we be a country defined by borders, or simply be a repository for anyone who wants to come here? Should we be a refuge for the rest of the world to come for education? Health care? Housing? Food stamps? And yes even social security? And should they get a license? A free college education, while American kids have to pay for theirs? And of course, should they get the right to vote?”
