‘Fake Emergency’: In Harrisburg, protesters push back against Trump’s grab for wall funds

    From PennLive:

    “A group of protesters carried signs and gathered on the steps of the federal building in Harrisburg on President’s Day to voice their opinions against President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to secure funding for the border wall.

    “We were about 100 people out here today speaking out about President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency, pushing back on the idea that this is any kind of national emergency and that it’s anything the people of Pennsylvania or the people of this country wants,” said Karen Showalter of MomsRising.org, who was one of the organizers.

    They marched for about an hour in the cold, carrying signs with slogans like “Fake Emergency.”
