Even More Winning: House Fails to Override President Trump’s Veto Over National Emergency Declaration

From Fox News


House Democrats on Tuesday failed to override President Trump’s first veto as part of their battle over border security,  representing a victory for the administration that allows the president’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border to stand.

The president had vetoed a Democrat-backed measure to cancel that emergency. The House voted 248-181 on Tuesday in favor of overriding – but this fell 38 votes short of the two-thirds majority needed. Only 14 Republicans voting in favor of the veto override.

……Trump had declared the border emergency under a law that lets him shift budget funds to address dire situations. His plan is to shift an additional $3.6 billion from military construction projects to work on border barriers. Congress voted this year to limit spending on such barriers to less than $1.4 billion, and Democrats called his declaration a gambit for ignoring lawmakers’ constitutional control over spending.


The U.S. has the right to control who enters the country. There is no Constitutional or legal right for a foreigner to enter the U.S.  It’s a privilege. Every country has immigration laws, travel laws, and borders.

The Dems and RINOs can bitch all they want about the “constitutionality’. It’s in the Federal Statutes: 50 U.S. Code Chapter 34 – National Emergencies.
