Breaking : Trump’s emergency declaration on border wall – Overturned in House

House passes resolution to overturn Trump’s emergency declaration on border wall

The House on Tuesday rebuked President Donald Trump over one of his signature issues, passing a resolution to overturn his emergency declaration to unlock money for wall construction at the US southern border.

The vote was 245-182. Thirteen Republicans voted with Democrats to pass the measure.

The resolution will next be taken up by the Senate, where it will put Republican unity to the test, though Senate leaders have signaled they will not bring it to a vote immediately.

It is not yet clear how many Republicans will vote for the resolution in the Senate, but it looks likely to pass the upper chamber, despite the fact that Republicans hold a majority. That would be yet another blow to the President, who has said he will veto the resolution if it comes to his desk.

  1. So the Democrats have decided they need to try to throw sand in the gears of the President’s actions! 🙁 They’d rather put politics ahead of our national security. Over the past few months they have done one thing very well, if nothing else. They’ve made me glad that I am no longer a Democrat. I will NEVER in this lifetime vote for another Democratic candidate. Even if they are the only person running for an office, I will refuse to mark my ballot to elect a Democrat, even for local dogcatcher.

    1. Neither will I. I think we need to get a list of Rep that voted against President Trumps decision to go with humanitarian crisis money to build the wall and post it on all the social media sites so everyone will know who the traitors and backstabbers are. I know a lot of people that are Rep that will not be happy about the Rhinos decision. They are a bunch of cowards. The voters will remember who they are when they come up for re-election.

  2. I hope that no one votes for the thirteen republicans that voted against the wall. Maybe they should become democrats . They sided with the other side against their own. Lets get rid of them in the next election. ” BUILD THAT WALL”

      1. We should have cleaned house in the last Mid-Term but like so many Mid-Terms and Congressional elections during the Presidential election, I guess people felt that President Trump should have kept his campaign promises within the first 90 days of his presidency despite all the Democratic, RINO and parasitic resistance. Not to mention Obama’s candyass Courts getting in the way. If only those bastards had blocked Obama’s EOs as vigoriously there would only be half the problems now. We all know those EOs were unconstitutional but that does not seem to matter to the courts. President Trump is well within his powers to do what he does but the courts slow him down with countless legal battles.

    1. The Democrats have endorsed the invasion of 25 million illegal aliens to prop up their voter fraud. It’s time for the president to use all means available to end the Democrats overthrow of this nation.

        1. Here are the Republicans that voted against the WALL
          The 13 Republicans voting with Democrats were Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Mike Gallager of Wisconsin, Jaime Hererra Beutler of Washington, Will Hurd of Texas, Dusty Johnson of South Dakota, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, Francis Rooney of Florida, Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, Elise Stefanik of New York, Fred Upton of Michigan and Greg Walden of Oregon.

        2. “The 13 Republicans voting with Democrats were Reps.

    2. democrats are out of control. Tell the families who have lost love ones from illegal drug dealer and criminals that cross our borders. You should be ashamed of yourself. The true color of the democrats is coming to the surface, If the middle class and poor think the democrats are looking out for us, YOU ARE DEAD WRONG. WAKE UP AMERICA AND SECURE OUR BORDERS.

    3. Here are the 13:
      Justin Amash, Michigan
      Brian Fitzpatrick, Pennsylvania
      Mike Gallagher, Wisconsin
      Jaime Herrera Beutler, Washington
      Will Hurd, Texas
      Dusty Johnson, South Dakota
      Thomas Massie, Kentucky
      Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Washington
      Francis Rooney, Florida
      Jim Sensenbrenner, Wisconsin
      Elise Stefanik, New York
      Fred Upton, Michigan
      Greg Walden, Oregon

    4. What is wrong with our Republican Party. The Dems always stick together. Our Rinos always stick with them. WE need to run real Republicans next election against all those Rinos!

    5. The Rhino people won’t get my vote. I am so tired of the crime in my area.
      Drug gangs. Drugs, sucides, domestic violence. home invasion, rape, murder,
      Home invasion, man murdered and 3 couples beat up.
      Three 12 year olds, molested by illegals.
      The Senators and Congressman have a security guard. Wall around their homes, IAM sure Pelosi has a guard and her her wall..
      Thank God for the cement wall.

    6. I second that! Flush the democrats out as well. A wall protects American citizens. The democrats seek to protect their job and be damned about the security of our country and citizens.

    7. They were nothing but Democrats with Republican clothes on that’s all they were spot on with scum showing up the conservative party in America and all who die fighting for this great nation

    8. That’s right Romney is a Wolfe in sheep’s Clothing…Its going to be a long 6 years.!! Get rid of him next election.. !!! What a Pussy… he is a true middle of the Roader Politicion..
      TO BAD Orin Hatch still.isnt in office..

    9. The “WALL” won’t stop anyone from coming across the boarder. Plus the president is a fucking liar and a moron and racist piece of “Shit!!!

      1. Look. Another opportunity to call out a Liberal leg humper for Obama……..

        So tell us. What has President Trump done that was not good for America? Is it more than he has orange hair, as you other idiots seem to think? Perhaps you are mad because he is trying to prevent the rest of your family from crossing illegally? Maybe it is because he is trying to get the Welfare bums and Baby Mamas off their asses and actually look for a job for once. A whole family being on Welfare for 3 generations is pretty pathetic, wouldn’t you say?

    10. We Republicans had an opportunity to get rid of those who demonstrated a tendancy to go against our President at all costs and have also shown themselves to be RINOs. I can say with good conscience that I voted to get replacements for Debbie Stabanow and Gary Peters. Not only did those two career parasites get voted in for another term, but another Democrat made it into The House courtesy of my fellow Michiganders. Guess not all of us have enough hair on the genitalia to do what is necessary to clear out the Swamp. Surprises me since Trump broke The Blue Wall and won Michigan and 3 other states in the Rust Belt. We should have done better in the Mid-Term but I lay that at the feet of Republicans. They showed us that they were on-board with MAGA but only as a vehicle for re-election. Still, Kentucky citizens had an opportunity to rid us of the other high-ranking RINO, Speaker of the Senate Bitch McConnell, but failed. That would have dismissed a RINO and took him out of the Speakership at the same time. Paul Ryan resigning was a gift. That eliminated the high-ranking RINO in The House. Bitch has been in the Senate for too long and brings the very definition of “Establishment Politics” to Washington. He needed to go but I guess the citizens there were too busy “keeping it in the family” to care what their Senator was doing.

  3. The name and state needs to be posted and a challenge must be mounted for each and every one of them. Time to kick them to the curb and send them home ASAP.

    1. Constitution’s Convention of States, Article V, gives us the means to impose Term Limits on Congress and allows us to review all Federal legislation and judicial decisions. 38 states is all we need to change what we want by circumventing Congress. Putting Term Limits back on them is a start, but we need to take away the retirement benefits they voted in for themselves first, them slap term limits on them. Otherwise many will resign with that retirement intact, costing us millions of tax dollars so they can be paid their salaries for life and they have not even been deserving of it.

  4. I love the first amendment, freedom of speech is something the democrats would like to see go the way of the DoDo. I can honestly say that i am sorry that Coast Guard officer was apprehended before eliminating those terrorists on his list, he would have done his country a great service. Maybe one day some will wake up and see just what these anti Americans want to turn the country into.

  5. What? Thirteen Republican Traitors that went to the Dumbocrat/Socialists (Not Patriotic Democrats!!!
    They should be thrown out of the Republican Party; they will probably defect any way !!!

    1. Reminds me of the baseball game years ago that was thrown by the players for money. The fans in the stadium were disappointed and aghast watching the players fail their team and as it turned out they did it for money… dark money.

      We are watching it all over again. First the Republican House and next the Republican Senate.

  6. How many people must continue to die due to the stupidity of not building the wall. All who vote to prevent it will be responsible for those deaths. Those hurt and those affected negatively in so many way in because of politics!!!

  7. Republican Rhinos should leave the party because they do not work for the good of the American people and their safety. Who in their right mind would not want a border wall that could help our agents perform their jobs better and more safely.

  8. What is wrong with these politicians & what are they gaining with no boarder security and allowing our babies to be murdered by abortions even up to 9 months! This is all very sick and evil the devil is in the details.

  9. Talk talk talk, every person is talking about how bad this congress is and the only ones that have the power to do anything about how bad this congress is, is “We The People” Article 5 Convention of States is “We the People’s” ONLY BEST CHANCE to fix a what is becoming completely out of control government. The reason the second amendment was written and ratified into the Constitution. So all you self proclaimed Constitutional scholars out there READ AND UNDERSTAND ARTICLE 5 of the United States Constitution!! Then and ONLY then will you UNDERSTAND what is required to FIX the MESS “We the People” have allowed to take place.

  10. There are 25 million illegal aliens now in this country. (per Trump statement) How many more millions of illegals will it take for these idiots to agree that this is an emergency? Thousands being killed by illegal aliens, and more being robbed, injured, mugged, provided drugs. How many more thousands will it take? Don’t these idiot Republicans understand that the Democrats want open borders to bring in millions more illegals for vote fraud to keep them in power?

  11. There has obviously been illogical Rinos elected. They don’t understand what they are doing The constitution was written many years ago and doesn’t include every logical and illogical thing. People should be capable to understand what is necessary and take appropriate action . Even if not in an old sometimes outdated constitution. When the constitution was written the problem with millions of illegal invaders didn’t exist.

    1. Oh but there were, thankfully tho the rednecks got their ass handed to them and they went home with their tails between their legs and that’s what should happen to the illegals in this country sponging off us uninvited!

  12. It’s a sad day. I live in New York. You know the state that the governor want to kill little babies. We need the names so we can make sure everyone remember s what they did

  13. We should get the names of these 13 Rino a**holes and let them know that they should not be Republicans…I do know one thing…Democrats DO
    Stick together…even when they’re wrong. SHAME to these 13 dispicable people. You’re TRAITORS to the GOP…I’m truly adhamef of what you did.

  14. Just remember you 13 pieces of crap.You reap what you Sow.Why don’t
    you just change to the communist party.Forgot you already have.

  15. This is an absolute disgrace and a huge slap
    In the face to Trump. Even the republicans are jealous of him. They don’t want any “ outsider” upsetting their over filled AppleCart. Bunch of greedy…. sons of a gun. I hate them all. They couldn’t care less about what the American people want.. as long as there are illegals, there are votes for the Dems. As for the RINOs… sheer unadulterated jealousy. Go to hell, each and every one of you!!!!

  16. The Democrats need to stop,trying to over throw the United States Government. Pelosi needs to take her little butt boy cryin Chuckie, To SHIT HOUSE where they belong. Enough already Stop trying to undermine our President and his staff. I would expect the Republicans to be loyal to the American People, your President and your Country needs your support. When that Fantenal gets loose. Kills millions not hundreds millions I say We The People hold the Democrats Responsible. There is a State Of Emergency along our southern Boarder with Mexico. Haven’t Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Schiftey, And Clinton’s made enough money off the backs of the American People. After thirty years or more of pilfering the American Purse.i would think it’s time to get Rid of these people. How does a civil servant who goes into office with a modest means. Then thirty years later they are millionaires. Something not adding up. I think the people asking for all these investigations. Should be investigated, makes a person wonder just 2hat really happens behind close doors. Think about it People here we have a man who’s not getting paid to do a job. Who has done more in two years then the last the four Presidents their whole time in Office combined. What are the Democrats trying to hide, why is it so important to try and find anything on our President. They keep saying their going to impeach Donald Trump. What is it he has done,?what law has he broken? If the Democrats want a investigation . Let them explain what happened to all of that money Obama gave to Iran. Now there’s a story. A social worker from the south side of Chicago becomes a millionaire five times over. Come on People leave a good man to do his job. This is why I’m not a Democrat anymore and I will never be a Democrat ever again. The people need to wake up and VOTE these thieving Democrats out of Office this next time up to vote in 2020. I’m thinking Term Limits, the sooner the better. I’m tired of making people millionaires. Bernie Sanders is a independent he should not be allowed to campaign in the Democratic campaign. We need to investigate why we are allowing members of the Muslims Celphate to hold office. When it’s quite clear they don’t support our constitution. We need to be Americans with Alegents to our country. I would just like to wake up some morning without worrying about the Democrats trying to undermine or over throwing our Country. I rest this frustration is from a Vietnam Veteran who has seen first hand what the Democrats have done to our Country.
    Thank you

  17. I just say that all the above comments are true and they’re traitors to Pres. Trump They’ll feel the Trump Machine sweep them out of the White House come Nov./2020.

  18. The open-borders Marxist Democrats have declared war on America and thirteen House Repubicans have joined their ranks. This is treason fron within. About two thousand years ago Cicero said: “A nation can survive it’s fools. It cannot survive treason from within.”

    1. If there’s such a thing as reincarnation, we need to be praying that we can get our own incarnation of Cicero very soon!

  19. I want the names of the 13 swamp Republicans that went against our President and the American people that duly elected him. Please list them promptly.

  20. What amazes me is some democrats think they’re the party ‘for the people’…it hasn’t been this way in 15 years! And the RInos shouldn’t even call themselves republicans! Vote them out! Build the wall!! America was founded on immigrants, yes…should definitely be legal unless they’re REALLY seeking asylum, which many CLAIM now!

  21. The dems have proven themselves, as a group, to be Absolute TRAITOROUS ASSHOLES who appear to be provoking a WAR they will not win!!! Their leaders need to be arrested and unceremoniously, shipped out of the Country to a gardenspot like GITMO or worse!! There is a limit to their BS and I fear it is approaching!!!!

  22. SHORT & SWEET-THAT WALL IS GOING TO BE BUILT,-‘COME HELL OR HIGH WATER’-(OLD SAYING)- THE USA IS EDGING CLOSER & CLOSER, TO A 2ND CIVIL WAR! WARNING! IF THAT DOES OCCUR, I, TRULY BELIEVE,, THAT NOT ONLY WILL AMERICA BE ‘FRACTURED’ AGAIN, & EVENTUALLY ‘HEAL-AS WE DID IN THE LATE 1800’S-BUT, THE ‘CONSERVATIVE AMERICANS’, WHO TRULY LOVE THIS COUNTRY, & ARE OPPOSED TO ANYTHING, THE SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST WING HAS TO SAY-WILL TOTALLY, DISMANTLE & DESTROY, THE LEFTIST MANTRA & ALL THOSE WHO, ‘ADHERE’ TO IT. THE, SAD THING IS, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS, WHO HAVE NO, ‘THOUGHT’, OF THE DANGERS OF THEIR, ‘MANIC DISPLAYS’-THEY, ACTUALLY ARE ENJOYING THIS! THE USA, WIL WIN-ALWAYS DOES! THE SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST, ‘PARTICIPANT’S’-HAVE ABSOLUTELY, NO IDEA, OF THE, RAMIFICATIONS, THAT WOULD ENSUE, IF AMERICA, ENGAGED IN A 2ND CIVIL WAR! IT WOULD NOT BE NORTH VS. SOUTH-THIS TIME! IT WOULD BE EAST VS. WEST! AND, JUST SURVEYING THE EAST COAST, & THE EXTREME WEST COAST-I WOULD SUBMIT, THAT THE ‘CENTER’, OF THIS COUNTRY, WILL LITERALLY, EVISCERATE, ALL THE ‘WEENIE’S & WANNABEE’S, IN A HEARTBEAT! THIS, IS AMERICA-THOSE ‘PEOPLE’, & THEIR SCREAMING, IDIOTIC DEMANDS & THE SO-CALLED REPRESENTATIVE’S, CAVING TO THE, ‘CURRENT SPECIAL THREAT’S OF THE DAY’-WILL EVAPORATE, IN THE ‘BLINK OF AN EYE’!

  23. Take note….and remember in 2020. I believe in some states there are elections this year as well. Here are the thirteen. As reported in the The Hill:

    Republican defectors on Tuesday were a mix of several groups: There were the conservative constitutional literalists, like Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.) and Thomas Massie (Ky.), who frequently clash with GOP leaders on separation-of-power issues; there were the moderate centrists — including Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Greg Walden (Ore.) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.) — who agreed with the Democrats’ legal argument that Trump is abusing his powers. And there was Rep. Will Hurd (Texas), the only Republican representing a border district who has long-opposed Trump’s push for a lengthy and imposing border wall.

    Other GOP lawmakers who voted for the measure were Reps. Francis Rooney (Fla.), Dusty Johnson (S.D.), Fred Upton (Mich.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Jim Sensenbrenner (Wis.) and Mike Gallagher (Wis.).

  24. What the Democrats are doing is borderline treason and the Republicans with President Trump need to take the gloves off now and charge the Democrat leaders with treason and conspiracy. We cant allow these socialist traitors to defeat the good guys any longer.

    1. FIRST-13-‘REPUPLICAN’S-VOTED AGAINST-THEIR, PRESIDENT! SO, LET US, ‘SURMISE’-THAT ‘THOSE 13-ARE NO LONGER INTERESTED-IN, ‘REMAINING IN CONGRESS’! WORD’S OF WISDOM-TO AMERICAN’S! TRUMP, WAS, ‘CHOSEN’- TO BE, ‘OUR PRESIDENT’! LEGALLY! AND, WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE GETTING, ‘JUST A BIT’-‘UPSET’-OVER THE, CONTINUOUS-‘ATTACKS’-AGAINST THE, PRESIDENT, THAT ‘WE’,-ELECTED! THOSE, WHO DO NOT ‘LIKE OR ACCEPT’-OUR ‘CHOICE-SHOULD, ‘CONSIDER, THE ‘FACT’-THAT, WE, THE PEOPLE-OF THESE UNITED STATES- VOTED, ACCORDING TO THE LAW’S OF OUR LAND-TO ELECT, THIS MAN, AS OUR PRESIDENT! ANYONE, WHO, ‘ATTEMPTS’-ANY ACTION-TO , ‘HARM HIM-IN, ANY WAY/SHAPE/OR FORM-SHOULD BE MADE AWARE-THAT HE, IS OUR PRESIDENT & WE, WILL, ‘SUPPORT HIM’!

  25. That rhino bunch of bastards should be impeached and charged with treason. Cut the pensions and all the money they always seem to accumulate from only God knows where. They always seem to come out with millions. Impeach the entire lot of trash…clean/drain the dam swamp.
    Jamesdeanfishercopywriter/journalist

  26. Every REPUBLICAN that voted with the dems are TREASONOUS!!! They don’t care what the constituents what just like the dems!!! They don’t care that they have put TRUE Americans at more risk!!! TRUE Americans will now determine their fate, and also reps in the Senate, come 2020!!!

  27. The “WALL” won’t stop anyone from coming across the boarder. Plus the president is a fucking liar and a moron and racist piece of “Shit!!!

  28. It’s time to start writing names down of those voting against the wall and the will of the American people. Then vote them out!

  29. ANYONE who has actually seen these aliens come across our border illegally wants this border wall. It not only helps keep the bad guys out, but helps protect the good guys by making it hard for the Coyotes to charge then a thousand or so dollars to escort them across. We need this wall!

  30. Back in the 1980s there was the George Putnam show. I will never forget what George said on his show and it is this: “The difference between Republicans and Democrats is an illusion. They are all in the same camp”.
    If we want to really clean up the swamp, we need to vote ALL of the crooks in Capitol Hill out of there vote in true Americans.
    Another enemy within is the court system. This vicious enemy needs to be done away with also and replaced with one that reflects the Constitution.

  31. ^Those who voted it down, Traitors. It should of passed. Those whom voted it down, they will have all kinds of great politically correct excuses, but the fact of the matter is, they are simply traitors to America siding with Deep State, and getting money more than likely put into their PACS that you will not see By Deep State. The wana- be dictators. Totally evil scum bags who could care less about our constitution or America Heritage. There will be a place , hopefully soon, where you will have to stand and be judged,

  32. The thirteen GOP members of the House who voted for the resolution did not make any difference. It only takes a simple majority to pass and had the 13 not broken ranks the vote would have been 232 for with only 195 against and thus would have passed anyway. According to other articles this is considered a “privileged bill” and will immediately go to the floor of the Senate for a vote. Are there enough RINOs (or just those who sincerely are opposed) in the Senate to pass it? Maybe as again it only takes a simple majority that is 51 to pass. Then it goes to the President for his signature if he agrees that he should not have declared a national emergency. He has stated he will veto the resolution and I believe him. Upon veto the House can override with 2/3’s which is 290 while in the Senate it will take 67 votes to override. Possible but highly unlikely.

  33. I support Trump. I donated money to the republican party but I don.t want my money to go to people that won.t support my President. I will donate to Trump . Build that wall

  34. The DemoCommunist and R. I. N. O’s.would sell out their own mother for power. They would throw our security and safety under the bus just look over 500,000 Illegal Immigrants since the start of 2019 that is an Invasion pure and simple time to move the DemoCommunist and their R. I. N. O. buddies out of office!!!
