House Dems push ahead with bid to terminate Trump's emergency declaration

WASHINGTON — House Democrats pushed ahead Friday with a measure that seeks to terminate President Donald Trump's emergency declaration that he issued last week in order to circumvent Congress and build his wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, introduced a joint resolution in the House that would repeal the president's declaration. The measure was filed during the chamber’s pro forma session, a senior Democratic aide confirmed Friday morning, since lawmakers are on recess and don’t return to Washington until Monday.

The measure has at least 222 co-sponsors, Castro said Thursday evening.

In a letter circulated to lawmakers of both parties, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., urged all members to back it, saying the president’s move “undermines the separation of powers and Congress’s power of the purse.”

“The House will move swiftly to pass this bill,” Pelosi said in the letter, specifying that it would be reported out of committee within 15 calendar days and would be considered on the House floor three days after that. “The President’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated.”

Trump declared the national emergency in a speech from the White House Rose Garden last Friday after Congress refused to allot his full funding request for an actual wall in a bipartisan government spending package.

In declaring the emergency, he expected to have access to $8 billion for the wall, including the $1.375 billion in the funding package that he signed last week, $600 million in Treasury forfeiture, $2.5 billion from the drug interdiction program and $3.6 billion in military construction from the Defense Department, a senior White House official said.

The move has drawn bipartisan criticism, with Democrats blasting Trump and Republicans warning him that it sets a dangerous precedent for future presidents.

Under the National Emergencies Act of 1976, Congress has the ability to try to end an emergency status instituted by the president. Democrats in the House will have no problem passing the resolution given their 235-197 majority.

Once it passes the House, the measure would be sent to the Senate, where unlike most pieces of legislation, GOP leaders could not block it from reaching the floor. The federal law requires that the Senate take up the House-passed resolution within 18 days.


The resolution is considered “privileged” — which means it would not be subject to a filibuster and require 60 votes to move forward. Instead, it would simply require 51 votes to pass. If all 47 Democrats were to support the measure, they would need only four Republican defections to pass it — in a chamber that has not lacked for GOP criticism of the president's move.

In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said the president’s declaration represented a sharp expansion of executive power.

“That's why you see an awful lot of us concerned about this,” said Johnson, who said he would hear the president out — but did not rule out voting on a resolution of disapproval in the Senate, saying he would "decide when I actually have to vote on it.”

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said on Monday that the money Trump would be raiding from the military construction budget is needed for facilities around the country.

“So I think it's a bad idea,” he told reporters at Miami International Airport. “I also think it's a bad idea because usually emergency declarations are for situations in which Congress doesn't have time to organize itself to vote on it. The Congress just had a vote on this and it just expressed itself.”

A number of other GOP senators have publicly expressed skepticism or opposition to the declaration — with Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, saying she would back a measure limited to disapproval of the declaration itself. “If it’s a ‘clean’ disapproval resolution, I will support it,” she said, according to the Associated Press.

If both the House and Senate were to pass the resolution, it would send a major symbolic message — but its impact would be limited to symbolism: administration aides have already made clear Trump would veto any effort that interfered with his declaration, and the measure is unlikely to attract anywhere near the GOP support needed to overturn a presidential veto.

So Democrats are pushing back on other fronts, looking to nullify the declaration by challenging it in court, with California, New York and 14 other states filing a lawsuit on Monday to try to block the move.

I hope that they succeed in this pursuit. since over 60% of Amercians do not want the wall. and over 70% do not want to pay for it..
Teaching Dumpster what he should already know, going into his 3rd year in office, about what the Constitution says and means.. will still go in one ear and out the other, he still thinks he is a Dictator and above the law.. I hope that is proven wrong,

No, it is important news.. this is a President trying to circumvent the Constitution.
You know that the GOP swears they stand by, until they get a Crook like Dumpster as President. Then they toss it out the window

Constitution says.. US House Will determine how money is funded and spent. not the President.
Dumpster could not get his funding when the GOP controlled both the House and the Senate.. now that the Dems control the House.. now Dumpster and it appears with the suddenly timid GOP, is trying to get the money that he was denied in the US House. Sadly there is a 5-4 GOP controlling SCOTUS, so they might go with Dumpster getting away with this power grab..
But .. When A DEM gets back in the WH and they Will.. GOP must remember, they did this to themselves, when a DEM President declares Global Warming a National Disaster. Or Healthcare a National Disaster.
Got to think past just this moment on this.. don't you???

Lets go back 9 years.. to 2010

c/p yahoo news

Will Liberals ever grasp the concept that CONGRESS not the White House controls the purse strings of the US?


end c/p

See always 2 sets of rules depending on who is sitting in the White House!!!!!

Global warming and health care are both a disaster exponentially more than tRump's border wall.

I agree, Housing on and around US Military bases is also, but Dumpster wants to rob from them to pay for the wall.. I posted an article the other day about on and near military bases, because they never regulated or controlled the foam they spray on fires at the air bases. that the drinking water is contaminated and making lots of people sick and die.. that is much more important also, but that is also part of the Pentagons funding that is going to be raided to pay for the wall.
Only Dumpster and his base that is buying into his Fear Mongering Lies. believe there really is a threat to the safety of the US at the Southern Border..

Just a refresher, Dumpsters own words.. We Will Take Care Of our Veterans Like They Have Never Been Taken Care Of Before..
you know like taking funding out of their housing and safe drinking water.. is really taking care of them like never before isn't it..

Nearly everything else takes precedence to the dumpster wall.

No modern country needs an antiquated structure such as the wall in the 21st century.

Only dumpster can't see past his biased nose to see that.

I wonder how close the senate can come to an override of a veto.
At some point the GOP may break from DJT. This presents them the best opportunity.
Peace,

Only 3 have stated they will vote with the DEMs. 2 of those are up for Re-election in 2020. that leaves 1 short of the 51 votes needed to pass it.
it takes 67 votes for a veto proof vote.

I have learned through the years that a party break is never small.
Many will hash over a break before it happens. When it comes it will be like a wave or wall...LOL
I see a big chance right here.
Pop some popcorn and tune in.
