House fails to override President Trump’s veto and terminate national emergency on the border

Fox News

The House of Representatives failed to pass a resolution on Tuesday that would override President Trump’s first veto and let stand his declaration of a national emergency at the Mexican border.

The House voted 248-181 in favor of overriding the president’s veto and doing away with Trump’s emergency declaration – falling 38 votes short of the two-thirds majority needed to pass through the lower chamber or Congress. The measure passed mainly on party line with only 14Republicans voting in favor of the veto override.

    As expected, the House doesn’t have the votes needed to override the veto. The 13 Republicans who supported the resolution – plus Rep. Katko, who was absent for that vote – joined Dems in supporting the override.

    Those 13 are: Amash, Fitzpatrick, Massie, Herrera Beutler, Hurd, McMorris Rodgers, Walden, Upton, Rooney, Johnson of South Dakota, Sensenbrenner, Gallagher and Stefani

    The mere fact that such a vote was needed should strike deep fear into the hearts of ALL Americans. The Democrat Party IS intent on ending the Constitutional Republic called the United States, and they will not be easily stopped. Any citizen worthy of the privilege of being a citizen, and that rules out almost ALL millennials, would insist that our borders be secure. Those who fight to keep it open can only be considered traitors. They are eager to see the invasion continue. They want more illegals, crime, drugs and human trafficking, terrorist and criminals flooding in. WHO in their right mind would support that? Only enemies of this country.
