Scheming Democrats introduced a new bill specifically designed to prohibit President Trump from pulling “emergency funds” for a border wall.
The effort was spearheaded by Democratic Senator Tom Udall and is meant to halt the president from accessing funds held by the Army Corps of Engineers or the Department of Defense’s military accounts.
The bill specifically states that funding cannot be used “for the construction of barriers, land acquisition, or any other associated activities on the southern border without specific statutory authorization from Congress” during a national emergency.
The move is a direct response to President Donald Trump. He stated that if a deal cannot be reached with Democrats over wall funding that he would declare a national emergency in order to get the job done.
Sadly, it looks like both sides are preparing for a worst-case scenario where negotiations turn out to be a complete failure.
