Trump READY to VETO any measure used to THWART National Emergency
Good. We need to protect our borders contrary to popular belief. It sickens me that Americans who believe everything that CNN tells them don’t actually look for a counter opinion.
And hey, I’ll admit — when I was younger, more naive, and genuinely stupid before I put away childish ways many years ago (as Reagan would put it), I actually believed the counter opinions to the facts I grew up with.
But we NEED a wall folks. Even Democrats have said it over the years:

“Stephen Miller, White House senior adviser, said during a weekend interview that President Trump will use his presidential veto power, should Congress vote in disapproval of his recent declaration of national emergency.
When asked about the possibility of a disapproval resolution coming from Democrats in Congress, Miller said that Trump “is going to protect his national emergency declaration, guaranteed,” implying that the president remains prepared to issue a veto.
Should Trump be forced to veto a Congressional disapproval resolution, it would be the first time he has done so during his presidency.
The issue stems from the ongoing debate over illegal immigration and security at the US-Mexico border, points which have left US lawmakers bitterly divided.
Specifically, President Trump’s proposed border barrier has been met with vehement opposition from House Democrats, leading to a government shutdown and a declaration of national emergency.”

“President Donald Trump is prepared to issue the first veto of his term if Congress votes to disapprove his declaration of a national emergency along the U.S.-Mexico border, a top White House adviser said on Sunday.
White House senior adviser Stephen Miller told “Fox News Sunday” that “the president is going to protect his national emergency declaration.” Asked if that meant Trump was ready to veto a resolution of disapproval, Miller added, “He’s going to protect his national emergency declaration, guaranteed.”
The West Wing is digging in for fights on multiple fronts as the president’s effort to go around Congress to fund his long-promised border wall faces bipartisan criticism and multiple legal challenges. After lawmakers in both parties blocked his requests for billions of dollars to fulfill his signature campaign pledge, Trump’s declared national emergency Friday shifts billions of federal dollars earmarked for military construction to the border.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra told ABC’s “This Week” that his state would sue “imminently” to block the order, after the American Civil Liberties Union and the nonprofit watchdog group Public Citizen announced Friday they were taking legal action.
Democrats are planning to introduce a resolution disapproving of the declaration once Congress returns to session and it is likely to pass both chambers. Several Republican senators are already indicating they would vote against Trump — though there do not yet appear to be enough votes to override a veto by the president.
The White House’s Miller insisted that Congress granted the president wide berth under the National Emergencies Act to take action. But Trump’s declaration goes beyond previous emergencies in shifting money after Congress blocked his funding request for the wall, which will likely factor in legal challenges.”
