Trump needs to veto resolution blocking emergency declaration at the border

March 5, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging President Donald Trump to veto a resolution blocking his emergency declaration on the southern border:

“The Senate vote on a resolution blocking President Trump’s emergency declaration on the border is little more than a show vote. President Trump should immediately veto the legislation knowing that it will be sustained in both houses. The President has absolute constitutional authority to protect our nation’s borders, and if that’s not enough Congress has delegated additional limited authority to the executive branch that clearly supports his emergency order. If Congress wants to rescind powers that it gave decades ago they should pass separate legislation doing that. It is time for both the Republicans and the Democrats in Congress to come to grips with the fact that Donald Trump is President and stop trying to create a different set of rules for the Trump presidency than have been applied to any other chief executive prior to his tenure.”
