Pelosi announces vote to override Trump’s veto

Donald Trump vetoes resolution terminating emergency declaration

Yesterday, Congress passed a unsafe resolution that, if signed into law, would put countless Americans in danger, very grave danger. The House previously passed the resolution last month, 245 (including 13 Republicans) to 182. It is definitely a national emergency.

Trump declared the national emergency after signing a government funding agreement that did not include the money he requested to build a wall. "Yesterday, Congress passed a unsafe resolution that if signed into law would put countless Americans in danger, very grave danger", he said, sitting behind his desk in the Oval Office.

Republicans who voted against the resolution want money to be there to secure the border, but wanted that to happen through the appropriations process, not through an executive order, said Barrasso, adding that he would have also preferred to do it that way. It it a tremendous crisis. We need barriers at the border.

Lee proposed a version of the resolution that would have restricted future emergency declarations while grandfathering in Trump's, but he couldn't reach a compromise agreement with the White House, and the plan fizzled. We have no idea who they are, but we capture them because border security is so good, but they're put in a very bad position, and we're bursting at the seams. 70,000 Americans a year are killed by drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl. "This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier".

"As president, the protection of the nation is my highest duty", Mr Trump said on Friday. Moments before using his veto card, a resolution was passed in Congress in which a dozen Red Shirts jumped to the Democrat side in voting against Trump's National State of Emergency.

Trump made the construction of a wall along the nearly 2,000-mile-long US-Mexico border a cornerstone of his 2016 presidential campaign, saying Mexico would pay for it.

About $601 million from the Treasury Forfeiture Fund.

Up to $3.6 billion reallocated from Department of Defense military construction projects under the President's declaration of a national emergency (Title 10 United States Code, section 2808).

The resolution was approved in the aftermath of the killing of US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018.

Shortly after the veto was official, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the vote to potentially override the veto would occur on March 26, saying "House Republicans will have to choose between their partisan hypocrisy and their sacred oath to support and defend the Constitution".
