Today’s Action: Stop Trump’s #FakeNationalEmergency – the Senate votes TODAY!

As many as 15 Republicans may join Senate Democrats in today’s vote to shut down Trump’s fake national emergency, in what is expected to be an embarrassing defeat for Trump. The joint resolution already passed in the House, with unanimous Democrats and 13 Republicans in support.

Trump’s fake national emergency has sideskirted the will of the people and ballooned the cost of his unwanted Mexico border wall from $5.7 to $8 billion (paid for by Mexico…which is apparently Trump’s word for the ‘American taxpayers’).

Securing as many Senate votes as possible will lock in firm public and Congressional opinion against the fraudulent state of emergency, and force Trump to decide between his first veto…or backing off from the wall.

The vote is TODAY. Call or email your Senators, and tell them to 1) vote YES on S.J.Res.10 to end the emergency and block any funds for the wall and 2) launch an investigation into abuses of power.

This illegal, undemocratic, and manufactured national emergency is a dangerous dictator-like step: 6 in 10 Americans are against it, Congress deliberately voted against it, and the ‘crisis’ is a manufactured and salacious lie to please Trump’s Twitter fanclub. There is NO emergency — undocumented immigrant numbers have actually dropped.

Congress is a ruling body equal to the presidency. For two years, Republicans in both chambers bent over backward to give Trump what he wanted. Now, Trump needs to grow up past a toddler’s understanding of negotiation and learn that throwing a tantrum won’t get him anywhere.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and tell them to support S.J.Res.10 to end the emergency and block any wall funding, and to next investigate Trump’s abuse of power.

And…remind Republicans that they’re *supposed* to be the party that wants to limit the federal government’s power. Where are their so-called values when we actually agree with them?
