                          PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE

                                 ______
                                 

    REPORT ON THE CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY ORIGINALLY 
  DECLARED IN EXECUTIVE ORDER 13536 ON APRIL 12, 2010 WITH RESPECT TO 
                             SOMALIA--PM 9

  The PRESIDING OFFICER laid before the Senate the following message 
from the President of the United States, together with an accompanying 
report; which was referred to the Committee on Banking, Housing, and 
Urban Affairs:

To the Congress of the United States:
  Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) 
provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, 
within 90 days before the anniversary date of its declaration, the 
President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the 
Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect 
beyond the anniversary date. In accordance with this provision, I have 
sent to the Federal Register for publication the enclosed notice 
stating that the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13536 
of April 12, 2010, with respect to Somalia is to continue in effect 
beyond April 12, 2019.
  The United States is strongly committed to Somalia's stabilization, 
and it is important to maintain sanctions against persons undermining 
its stability. The situation with respect to Somalia continues to pose 
an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States. Therefore, I have determined that 
it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared in 
Executive Order 13536 with respect to Somalia.
                                                       Donald J. Trump.
The White House, April 10, 2019.
