Trump issues first veto after rebuke of border order

President Trump is expected to veto the congressional resolution that blocks his national emergency declaration on the southern border on March 15, 2019 in Washington, DC. "Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it", he said.

But the Senate margin fell short of the 67 votes needed for a veto override.

"I'd like to thank all of the Great Republican Senators who bravely voted for Strong Border Security and the WALL", Trump tweeted ahead of his veto action. Trump has attempted to coax Republicans into voting his way on the issue and painted those who vote against him as standing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and for crime and open borders.

For those playing games instead of making them, Steam Link is now officially usable outside of home networks, albeit in open beta. It should be added that iOS users are now out of luck, as Apple keep rejecting Valve's attempts to get the app on the App Store.

While the original passage marked a stinging rebuke from members of Trump's own party, his veto is likely the last word as lawmakers are unlikely to muster the two-thirds majority required to override. "This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Country".

Trump wants to use the emergency order to redirect billions in federal dollars earmarked for defense spending toward the southern border wall.

The emergency declaration is being challenged in court as an unconstitutional usurpation of Congress' power of the purse.

The renegade conservatives had condemned the emergency declaration for setting up a risky precedent for a president while emphasising that they still agreed with Mr Trump's tough border security policies.

Trump insists he's on solid legal ground, however. The measure ultimately passed 59-41, and Trump immediately vowed to veto. The resolution had previously passed the Democrat-controlled House.

They included Sens. Marco Rubio, Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey, Roy Blunt, Lamar Alexander, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, Jerry Moran, Mike Lee, and Roger Wicker.

But on Thursday, Tillis cast his vote with the president, saying he was reassured by indications that Trump would support changes to the National Emergencies Act itself to rein in presidential powers going forward, and that his GOP colleagues also backed such legislation.
