Let's show our support - CALL your Senator. If there is ANY emergency it is the Constitutional crisis in OUR White House. Senate Democrats to try blocking Trump’s border wall diversion again.
Shifting of $3.6 billion in military construction funds reignites effort to force a termination vote.
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer will announce that his caucus will force another floor vote to terminate President Donald Trump’s border security national emergency.
“This rises to a large and vital constitutional issue: does our country truly have checks and balances, particularly important when we have such an overreaching president? This vote will also provide a chance for Senators to prevent the president from stealing military funding from their states to foot the bill for an expensive and ineffective wall he promised Mexico would pay for.”
Schumer appears to be calculating that the specific projects targeted last week in the Pentagon announcement might lead to sufficient pressure on vulnerable GOP senators up for re-election in 2020, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally and North Carolina’s Thom Tillis.
Call to tell your senator you support a termination vote for this theft of our tax dollars.
