Trump urges GOP senators to OK emergency move

President Trump said Thursday he would

A majority of Republicans, or 50 percent, said that they would remain "much more likely" to vote for a Republican lawmaker who backed Trump's national emergency, 20 percent of GOP voters said that they would "somewhat more likely" back a member of Congress if they backed the emergency, while only 11 percent of Republican voters said it would make it less likely for them to vote for a member of Congress if they supported Trump's national emergency.

Pelosi and other House Democrats have argued that Trump's emergency declaration, which he is using as a way to spend more on barriers at the border than Congress has authorized, violates the Constitution.

The president says GOP senators "are overthinking" the expected Thursday vote and he tweets that it should be thought of as "very simply Border Security/No Crime".

It's long looked like the Republican-run Senate would join the Democratic-led House in voting to block Trump's declaration.

Still, it would call attention to congressional opposition to one of his chief campaign pledges: building the wall.

She said: "Obviously we continue to be working to leave in an orderly fashion with a deal, but we have made funding available". A Commons vote will be held on a no deal later today (Wednesday March 13).

A Morning Consult/Politico poll released on Wednesday revealed a hard choice for Republican lawmakers mulling whether to vote to nullify the national emergency on the border: Break with President Trump's efforts to build the wall and secure the border and alienate the GOP base, or attempt to gain Democrats and Independent votes.

Trump expressed his frustration with the GOP in a tweet Wednesday, pressing them to stand with him on the U.S. -Mexico border wall and reject the resolution. "The House will not take up this legislation to give President Trump a pass". Still, Congress would be highly unlikely to muster the two-thirds majorities needed to eventually override a veto.

Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., who has pushed the administration for days on its legal rationale for declaring the national emergency, said Tuesday that he has started getting the information from White House officials.

Paul said earlier this month that there were "at least 10" GOP senators prepared to oppose Trump's emergency. Lee said on Wednesday the White House had subsequently made clear his bill did "not have an immediate path forward" and he hoped it could be the "starting point for future work". "I will be voting to terminate the latest emergency declaration". "We have a MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY at our Border and the People of our Country know it very well!" Mike Lee (R-Utah) that tries to claw back some emergency powers to Congress and whether the White House endorses some version of it.

If passed into law, Lee's bill could impact Trump's national border emergency in the future, since ongoing national emergency declarations must be reaffirmed annually. One said Tillis told his colleagues he could change his vote if Trump was indeed ready to curb presidential powers to declare emergencies without Congress' approval.
