Senator Vows To Defend The U.S. Border Security: “Go Down There Like I Did”
Florida Senator Rick Scott vows to support the President’s call of Nation crisis on the border wall debate. Scott challenges the naysayers to take their butts down to the border and tell Border Patrol that they don’t care about their safety and the safety of other Americans.
According to Fox News, Democrats on Tuesday pushed unprecedented legislation through the House to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration to steer billions of extra dollars to his southern border wall, raising the prospect that Trump might issue his first-ever veto to defeat the effort.
The vote was 245-182, with all Democrats voting yea and 13 Republicans joining them.
Tuesday’s vote marked the first time the House or Senate has tried to terminate a presidential declaration of a national emergency, using the provisions of the National Emergencies Act of 1976. Former Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., attempted a similar effort regarding a national emergency declared by then-President George W. Bush, but the measure never came to a vote on the House floor.
Should enough Republicans in the GOP-controlled Senate defect and support the House bill, a two-thirds supermajority in both the Senate and House would be needed to override Trump’s veto. The White House issued a formal veto threat Tuesday ahead of the House vote, ramping up pressure on Republicans to hold the line. (With 427 representatives voting, the House needed 285 yeas to have a veto-proof margin on this legislation, and fell far short.)
It took President George W. Bush more than five years before he used his veto, and President Barack Obama only 11 months.
Let that sink in.
Although Democrats routinely deny that they’re for open borders — dismissing the very suggestion as an outrageous slur. BUT Democrats criticize DHS for trying to prevent storming of the border, and for responding to attacks on its agents with non-lethal crowd-control measures like tear gas, then what border-control measures can they possibly be for?
