Senate fails to override Trump’s border wall emergency declaration

The US Senate for the second time failed to block President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration for the security wall at the southern border, as most Republicans continued to side with his effort. The 53-36 vote Thursday was short of the two-thirds margin needed to override the president’s veto, meaning his emergency declaration will survive.

Just build the rest of the damn wall already, then launch a full scale invasion of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas to get these free loading thugs out of here

Well I guess any political stunt can count as a national emergency now. I am also unhappy about being forced to pay for it now.
