Now the resolution on the refusal to introduce a state of emergency on the border with Mexico was passed to the Senate for a vote. If he does not support the idea of Trump, the US President will use the veto. He promised to do it in February.
The US House of Representatives voted against the proposal of the President Donald Trump to introduce a state of emergency on the border of the United States and Mexico.
The resolution, which should block this decision, was approved by 245 legislators. 182 members of the House of Congress (most of them — Republicans) voted against, said the newspaper The New York Times. For blocking Trump’s proposed Declaration of emergency, according to it, including 13 Republicans voted. Among them is Will Hurd of Texas, the only Republican legislator representing the area on the border between the United States and Mexico.
Now the document was transferred to the Senate for approval, the Agency explains. If he blocks the initiative of the American leader, Trump can veto this decision and thus protect his Declaration on the introduction of state of emergency. A similar scenario was previously allowed in the White House. In particular, the confidence that Trump will do so, expressed his senior adviser Stephen Miller. Later, the American leader himself promised to do this.
To cancel the veto used by the President, congressmen will need two-thirds of the vote against the Declaration of emergency in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Trump proposed to introduce a state of emergency on the border with Mexico last year. Such an initiative was the result of his disputes with legislators about financing the construction of the wall in the region. They have caused the “shutdown” of the US Federal government. Later it became known that the congressmen managed to come to an agreement on the issue of security on the border with Mexico. Democrats agreed to allocate $ 1.3 billion for the construction of the wall, the White House had previously insisted on $ 5.7 billion.
