House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning a vote to override President Donald J. Trump’s veto of an action that would stop his national emergency declaration at the United States-Mexico border, preventing the president from freeing up money to build the border wall.
After President Trump vetoed Congress passed legislation that would prevent the president from building the wall through national emergency powers, Rep. Pelosi now believes she has the votes to override the president’s veto.
President Trump vetoed the bill less than an hour before Pelosi released her statement via the House Speaker website.
In a press release put out on Friday afternoon, Pelosi said she has scheduled the override vote for March 26.
“The House and Senate resoundingly rejected the President’s lawless power grab, yet the President has chosen to continue to defy the Constitution, the Congress and the will of the American people.
“On March 26, the House will once again act to protect our Constitution and our democracy from the President’s emergency declaration by holding a vote to override his veto.
“House Republicans will have to choose between their partisan hypocrisy and their sacred oath to support and defend the Constitution.”
If successful, this would totally stop President Trump’s attempt to build the border wall without congressional funding. Both the House and Senate would need a two thirds majority vote to override the veto.
Twelve senate Republicans joined with Democrats along near partisan lines yesterday to stop the national emergency declaration.
According to Breitbart, these included “Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Rob Portman (R-OH), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Roy Blunt (R-MO).”
Assuming only these twelve Republicans would vote to override President Trump’s veto, they would fall short of the two thirds majority needed in the senate. It remains to be seen whether the majority of Senate Republicans will side with the president, or if they will cross the line to join Sen. Chuck Schumer and Pelosi in preventing the United States from gaining much needed border security.
Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall
President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.
The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.
“The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.
Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.
Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
