Senate Rejects Trump’s Border Emergency Declaration

all we need is one more republican who supports the US Constitution over Donald Trump

Senate Rejects Trump’s Border Emergency Declaration

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Thursday easily voted to overturn President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the southwestern border, delivering a bipartisan rebuke to what lawmakers in both parties deemed executive overreach by a president determined to build his border wall over Congress’s objections.

The 59-41 vote on the House-passed measure sets up the first veto of Mr. Trump’s presidency. It was not overwhelming enough to override Mr. Trump’s promised veto, but Congress has now voted to block a presidential emergency declaration for the first time — and on one of the core promises that animated Mr. Trump’s political rise, the vow to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.

“Never before has a president asked for funding, Congress has not provided it, and the president then has used the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to spend the money anyway,” Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee, said. “The problem with this is that after a Revolutionary War against a king, our nation’s founders gave to Congress the power to approve all spending so that the president would not have too much power. This check on the executive is a crucial source of our freedom.”

Pepsi, why are you hoping for the demise of this country??
All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

the separation of powers embedded in the US Constitution says Congress appropriates funds.. a President isn't allowed to create a fake emergency to bypass congress. 

Anyone not opposing Trumps faux emergency - don't ever claim you care about the US Constitution again.

This where you go wrong. The emergency is far from fake. Just because the Liberals want to claim it’s fake doesn’t make it so.
They want the borders open so they can coddle the illegals, then pass laws so they can vote for them. They know it’s the only way they can stay in power.

The real emergency is that the Liberals are using their power to destroy this country from within by using illegals. If you won’t see that then you are just as much a traitor as they are.

The emergency declaration was probably overboard, but the democrats opened the door for it to happen.

We need, badly need, better border security, and while I don't think a physical wall is the answer -- at least not along the entire border -- the democrats are just being obnoxious to be obnoxious.
