    Senate votes 59-41 to end Trump’s national emergency declaration

    Senate votes to block Trump’s border emergency declaration, in bipartisan rebuke teeing up likely veto



    By Adam Shaw | Fox News


    Trump tells Republicans planning to vote against his national emergency declaration 'use your own discretion'

    President Trump says that he thinks it is a bad vote to be against border security.

    Senate Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues on Thursday in voting to block President Trump’s border emergency declaration -- a move expected to prompt the president's first-ever veto.

    The measure passed 59-41 as a dozen Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the resolution, despite White House efforts to keep the GOP united on the issue of border security.

    Those GOP members who backed the resolution cited concerns about the expansion of presidential powers.


    PELOSI WORKS TO DERAIL BID TO SPARE TRUMP FROM BORDER EMERGENCY REBUFF


    “I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters ahead of the vote. “This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution.”


    “This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier,” he said.


    The other Republicans who voted to oppose the declaration were Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Rand Paul, R-Ky., Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., Roger Wicker, R-Miss., Roy Blunt, D-Mo., Jerry Moran, R-Kansas, and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.


    Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., however, had said he would oppose the declaration but reversed course on the Senate floor, saying that he was "sympathetic" to Trump's push to deal with the crisis at the border.


    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., before the vote, said he "takes his hat off" to Republicans voting with Democrats, while accusing Trump of "going around Congress" with the declaration.


    "This is a momentous day," he said, declaring that the balance of power was shifting back toward Congress.


    However, Trump is all but certain to answer the resolution with his first presidential veto. The measure heads next to his desk, having previously passed the House.


    Trump originally issued the emergency declaration last month after Congress granted only a fraction of the $5.7 billion he requested for a wall on the southern border. Declaring a national emergency allows Trump to steer an extra $3.6 billion to the wall.


    The run-up to the resolution vote was marked by last-minute efforts to avoid an intra-party confrontation, but those efforts fell through. Vice President Mike Pence, meanwhile, urged Republicans to support the national emergency declaration in an interview on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning.

    “A vote against the president's national emergency declaration is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that's happening at our southern border. So we're urging every member of the Senate set politics aside to recognize that we have a crisis,” he told "Fox & Friends’" Pete Hegseth.
    The House and Senate would need a two-thirds majority in both chambers to override a presidential veto -- which they almost certainly will not be able to muster.

    Trump shrugged off the impending vote when asked about it by reporters in the Oval Office earlier Friday.


    “I don’t know what the vote will be, it doesn’t matter, I’ll probably have to veto,” he said.


    Sen. Lee on Tuesday had introduced a bill that would automatically end future emergency declarations after 30 days, a move that might have allowed Republicans to vote against Thursday's resolution.


    But after Trump said he opposed Lee’s legislation, Lee said he would back the measure to rebuke Trump on the border emergency. On the Senate floor, he said while he backs Trump's policies on immigration, he could not support the emergency declaration and that Congress needed to take back its powers.


    Trump tweeted ahead of the vote that if Congress wanted to amend the law governing emergency declarations in the future, “I will support those efforts” suggesting another last-minute push to keep Republicans on board.

    Trump, shortly before the vote, said on Thursday that “a vote for today’s resolution by Republican senators is a vote for Nancy Pelosi, crime and the Open Border Democrats.”

    Governor's of the sanctuary states need to be charged with EMBEZZLEMENT of taxpayer money for harboring, aiding and abetting illegal aliens. They are transferring and diverting OUR tax dollars to pay for illegal aliens!

    It is embezzlement if those Governor's took our money to pay for their children's bills, home improvements, bond, vacations, college, food, etc! Same thing! Illegals are not entitled to our taxpayer funded benefits any more than their own family for personal use!

    No in-state tuition for illegal aliens. They have NO student visa to attend our schools. No more 2 sets of rules allowing illegal aliens to break our laws and attend our schools!

    Illegal aliens are not eligible for any taxpayer funded benefits including drivers licenses, welfare, food stamps, college, school, healthcare, housing, disability, social security or taxpayer funded lawyers.

    They are not eligible to receive any IRS tax refunds! Fire those employees who are awarding them the child care tax credits and refunds!

    They ARE foreign citizens and have no right to receive any services paid for by the U.S. taxpayers!

    SHUT THAT WHOLE BORDER DOWN

    NOT ONE DIME FOR GREYHOUND BUSES, FLIGHTS, HOTELS, FOOD, CLOTHING, MEDICAL CARE!

    WE ARE NOT THEIR UBER DRIVER, BUS DRIVER, AIRLINE PILOT, TRAVEL AGENT OR WAL-MART STORE!

    THEY HAVE NO AUTHORIZATION TO BE HERE LEGALLY AND NOT ONE DIME OF OUR MONEY SHOULD BE SPENT!
