Schumer Statement On President Trump’s Veto Of The Bipartisan Resolution To Terminate His National Emergency Declaration

March 15, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s veto of  the bipartisan resolution to terminate his national emergency declaration:

“It is no surprise that the president holds the rule of law and our Constitution in minimal regard. There is no emergency; Congress has refused to fund his wall multiple times; Mexico won’t pay for it; and a bipartisan majority in both chambers just voted to terminate his fake emergency.

“While the president has chosen to trample all over the Constitution, we Democrats in the Senate will never stop defending our country from an overreaching president.”
