Next week, Congress will begin the process of pushing back against President Trump's abuse of power. #FakeTrumpEmergency
The U.S. Constitution clearly separates executive and legislative powers. Trump's national emergency declaration violates the separation of powers and Congress will act to assert our authority as a co-equal branch of government.
After three weeks of negotiations, Congress intentionally blocked taxpayer dollars from going towards President Trump’s wasteful and ineffective border wall. By declaring a national emergency over a nonexistent crisis to build a wall along the southern border, President Trump is attempting to circumvent the will of Congress and the American people.
