WorthyNews: 12 GOP senators rebuke Trump, vote with Dems to block border emergency

Recommended Posts

(Worthy News) - A dozen Republican senators on Thursday voted with Democrats to block President Trump's declaration of an emergency at the southern border, a politically embarrassing rebuke to Trump that will set up the first veto of his presidency.

Trump declared the emergency to justify moving $3.6 billion from a military construction fund to a project to build physical barriers along the southern border. But that plan is opposed not just by Democrats but by many Republicans who worry Trump is testing or exceeding the boundaries of the National Emergencies Act.

In the House last month, 13 Republicans helped Democrats pass the resolution aimed at rejecting Trump's declaration. Thursday's 59-41 vote in the Senate will send it to Trump's desk, and Trump has said he would veto it. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
