On February 15th, Trump raised funds to build a wall on the US-Mexico border and announced a “state of emergency” on the southern border of the United States, planning to bypass Congress and raise more funds. This matter caused a huge controversy.
On March 14, the US Senate and the House of Representatives passed a resolution to stop the “national state of emergency.” According to CNN News on the 15th, Trump believes that the US Congress’ decision to stop his state’s state of emergency is “reckless” and “dangerous”, so on the 15th, he exercised his president’s veto for the first time. And once again stressed that the situation on the southern border of the United States poses a threat to the security of Americans. Trump said: “The decision of the House and Senate to stop the resolution of the national emergency will stop countless Americans from being in danger.”
Trump believes that Congress’s rejection of the border state’s state of emergency resolution is “reckless” and “dangerous” and insists that the situation on the southern border poses a threat to the security of American nationals. “Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution, and I have a responsibility to veto it,” Trump said.
Trump later said: “The land of freedom is facing an invasion, and the current immigration law in the United States must be amended.” US Attorney General Barr, who accompanied Trump to sign the decision, stressed that Trump’s announcement of a state of emergency is a legal mandate.
The US Congress is expected to reconsider the resolution after a week of recession. It is reported that after Trump exercises the veto power, both the Senate and the House of Representatives must re-pass the resolution by at least two-thirds of the votes to dismiss the president’s veto. However, the probability of this happening is not large.
