Sen. Tom Udall sponsored this legislation to prevent Trump from using funds from the Army Corps of Engineers or the Department of Defense’s military accounts just in case he declared a national emergency. This was more for optics as Democrats are in the minority in the Senate.
Tell me this, have you seen any proposed legislation from the House or Senate Dems that suggests they are looking out for the future of this country? If so, please direct me because they claim they care about this country but it’s all words, no actions. All of them are reactionaries without any positive, helpful agenda.
The legislation would prevent Trump from using funding from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers civil works funds and military construction funding “for the construction of barriers, land acquisition, or any other associated activities on the southern border without specific statutory authorization from Congress” if he declared a national emergency.
Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) added that the bill would “prevent funds designated for critical military construction and disaster response” from being used to build the wall in the event Trump declares a national emergency.
More than a dozen Democrats, including Udall and Heinrich, introduced the Restrictions Against Illegitimate Declarations for Emergency Re-appropriations Act. Among the RAIDER Act’s supporters are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who are both running for the party’s 2020 nomination.

So it’s okay to send billions to other countries, using taxpayers money for Planned Parenthood or give it to the opposition media to oppress the conservative voices. or spend billions on illegal caravaners, but we can not use our own money to protect and secure our borders.
These anti-Americans that lurk in our halls of Congress need to be removed and never put in another public position. It’s way past time we start cutting the funding for these people and demand they actually work 40 hours per week–we are the employers — time we start acting like it.
The Democrats have no shame. They have destroyed their party for many decades because of their nasty, spiteful lack of leadership. President Trump will win by a landslide in 2020 because he is a strong leader. Americans love Trump and they detest Pelosi and Schumer.Could not load the poll.
The time is rapidly approaching where each citizen will have to decide which side of the red line they are standing on. Open borders, rapidly increasing entitlements, rewards for those who take no personal responsibility, take from the rich and give to the poor, citing the past as the reason for personal failure and lack of success, etc., etc., etc. Those individuals will be pitted against common sense, decency and an understanding of what has made and will make America great as time marches on.
