Sen. Mike Lee arguably worked harder than the White House to forestall Thursday’s embarrassing defeat on emergency powers. The Utah Republican pored over federal budget documents, talked with White House lawyers and Senate colleagues, worked over the weekend to draft a compromise bill and personally lobbied the president and the vice president to no avail.…

Thom Tillis Flip-Flops, Will Support Trump On Emergency Declaration

Op-ed oops! Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) announced he’s reversed course and will vote against a resolution disapproving of President Trump’s emergency declaration on the southern border, just weeks after penning an op-ed promising to buck Trump on the bill. “I do not intend to vote for the resolution of disapproval,” he said on the Senate floor Thursday afternoon, shortly before the vote.

President Donald Trump’s border wall began as a symbol of his approach to immigration, so it’s only fitting that it may be rejected symbolically on Thursday as well.

In 2020 Budget, Trump’s Priorities Are Signature Pet Projects: Space Force, Wall

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump will be making a significant request for border wall funds and seeking money to stand up Space Force as a new branch of the military in the White House budget being released next week, an administration official said. For the first time, Trump plans to stick with the strict spending caps imposed years ago, even though lawmakers have largely avoided them with new budget deals. That will likely trigger a showdown with Congress. The official said Friday t...

Border Patrol union deletes 2012 anti-border wall web page that argued walls waste taxpayer money

A union that represents agents for the U.S. Border Patrol deleted a 2012 page from their website that said building walls or fences along the U.S./Mexico border to stop desperate migrants would be “wasting taxpayer money.” VICE's Motherboard reports that the deleted web page was originally posted in 2012. It carried an argument against walls like the one Trump's pushing today, and said border barriers don’t tackle migration's root causes, and may encourage more migrants to enter the U.S. thro...
