Susan Collins has backed a bipartisan resolution that would block President Trump from diverting funds to build his Border Wall.
A bipartisan group of senators introduced a resolution on Wednesday to nix President Trump’s emergency declaration allowing him to build a border wall.
The resolution, from Sens. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), would block Trump from shifting funds for military construction to building his wall. Collins is a top Democratic target in the 2020 elections.
Here is a statement from Senator Tom Udall:
“New Mexico just lost $125 million in military construction funding and millions more could be at risk if this so-called emergency goes on unchecked. We must continue to stand up in a bipartisan way to block the president from circumventing Congress and stepping on the separation of powers,” Udall said in a statement.
The initial headline from the Mainstream Press claimed that this is “biparstian”. This is correct. What they don’t spell out properly is the fact it is just Susan Collins that has signed onto this.
It is crazy to me that this is such a problem. The Senate can easily backfill the funds by having another vote.
