Trump’s Veto of Democrat Border Security Bill Stands
The United States of America is experiencing a REAL CRISIS at our Southern Border. While President Trump has a clear plan to address the issue, and mitigate the danger to our citizens, the Democrats are stonewalling.
Building “the wall” became a HUGE rallying cry during Trump’s 2016 campaign. Conservatives saw this promise as Trump’s dedication to keeping America safe from criminal gangs, illegal drugs, and the anarchy we are currently witnessing along the Mexican border.
President Donald Trump’s veto of a border security measure will stand after House Democrats could not earn enough votes to stop the veto.
In response to the escalating crisis, the president had declared a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border. Democrats tried to cancel the emergency declaration, but Trump vetoed their vote.
The House voted again, 248 to 181, to override the veto. However, the vote needed 38 more votes to earn the two-thirds majority to override the President’s veto. According to Fox News, 14 Republicans voted in favor of the override.
True to form, Trump tweeted after the House vote on Tuesday, saying “BIG WIN today on the boarder.”
Under Trump’s veto, the border emergency allows him to earmark budget funds to border operations. He plans on moving an additional $3.6 billion from military construction projects to work on border barriers.
Earlier this year, Congress voted to limit border spending on barriers to less than $1.4 billion. Partisan critics are now saying Trump is ignoring Congress’ constitutional power.
According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-A) and Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX), “Both chambers of Congress – a Democratic House and a Republican Senate – resoundingly rejected the President’s sham emergency declaration by passing H.J.Res.46,” said shortly after the vote in a joint statement.
“The President’s lawless emergency declaration clearly violates the Congress’s exclusive power of the purse, and Congress will work through the appropriations and defense authorization processes to terminate this dangerous action and restore our constitutional system of balance of powers,” Pelosi continued.
According to a recent interview with Representative Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), the democrats have a singleminded agenda obstruct the Trump at any cost.
