(Worthy News) - Senate Republicans are holding active discussions about whether to amend a resolution revoking President Trump's border emergency in a way that scolds Trump for the way he asserted authority over the federal budget to fund his border wall.
Senators made it clear Monday that Republicans are still debating whether they have the authority to add any language to the House-passed resolution, and if so, what they might add. But some confirmed that there is talk about hammering home in the resolution that the Senate is not happy with Trump's move.
“There is a lot being talked about,” Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., told the Washington Examiner. “I have heard discussion about trying to express concern about separations of powers issues and maybe reining some of the powers back. It’s been all over the map. My sense is it won’t come together.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
