The Senate voted 59-41 on their resolution to block Pres Trump’s LEGAL National Emergency declaration to secure the southern border. Of those 59 12 were republicans who chose to side with democrats VIOLATING the Separation of Powers by interfering with powers legally delegating by Congress in 1976 to the Executive Branch. These 12 republican senators do not deserve your support let alone vote come 2020.

These people are not reading the laws they’re being charged with enforcing. If they did they’re damn jobs they would know Trump is clearly acting within his right under the National Emergencies Act of 1976 and the Military Construction Codification Act of 1982. These republicans are putting politics ahead of national security. We have tons of lethal illegal drugs, weapons, tens of thousands of illegal aliens crossing the US-Mexican border every month. If these things, as well health issues, criminals, terrorists etc, aren’t enough for the situation to be deemed a crisis then what is!?
100,000 not enough, is 101,000?
The US DOES NOT have the infrastructure to take care of an additional 1,000,000 people who have NOTHING to offer the nation. They’re poorly educated, possessing basic LOW skills who will contribute NOTHING, they REFUSE to assimilate and these 12 republicans just joined Nancy Pelosi and the democrats saying “come on in there’s plenty of room and free stuff to go around” because it’s NOT THEIR backyard these illegals will be setting up camp or leaching off their wallets!
As Lou Dobbs said, they all need to be removed from office.. throw them out. Time for being nice, forgiving, understanding and giving 2nd, 3rd, 4th chances to this do nothing waste of flesh party are far, far over. Ya know if the democrats were treating their voters the way the GOP treats theirs, the dem voters would have already been marching on DC demanding their leaders immediate resignation! Time to step up to the plate America vs whining from the sidelines.
* For a Constitutional conservative, Mike Lee’s action is beyond shameful. He knows better, there is no excuse/ rational explanation he can issue as to why he voted this way. This isn’t the first time he’s wandered off the reservation, 2020 may be the right time to retire him
** No one should be surprised by Rand Paul taking a position against POTUS. He is simply following in his obstructionist fathers footsteps, eroding what credibility he has left of being a conservative.
