Democrats Could Halt Trump's Border Emergency In The Senate

According to Reuters, U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who also happens to be a Republican, said that he would vote to support a resolution to end President Donald Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border emergency declaration.

This would likely give Democrats enough votes to pass the measure in the Senate.

During a speech on Saturday at Western Kentucky University, Paul said “I can’t vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress... If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing." Trump has pledged to issue his first veto if the Senate approves the resolution.

Although the Senate, from a voting perspective, could not necessarily override his veto, Reuters says that "passage in the Republican-controlled chamber would be an embarrassment for the president." Reuters explains, "(Trump) has failed over more than two years in office to persuade Congress to fund his wall, a central promise of his presidential campaign." President Trump’s demand and desire for $5.7 billion dollar U.S./ Mexico border wall prompted the longest partial U.S. government shutdown in history, in December and January.
