BORDER/CONGRESS/DHS/FEDERAL FUNDING/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Arguing that President Donald Trump must ‘come to his senses,’ House Democrats offered a plan Monday [12-30-19] to end the government shutdown and give Congress more time to negotiate a deal with the White House over border funding. The plan includes full-year funding for shuttered departments except for the Department of Homeland Security. It also calls for temporary funding for DHS through Feb. 8, putting off for several weeks the major sticking point that caused the shutdown.  Funding for the Department of Homeland Security sits at the center of the ongoing impasse between the White House and congressional Democrats that has led to a partial government shutdown, now in its second week. Trump has sought additional money for a border wall, and Democrats have balked at the idea.”

Wrong, and it is going up fast. Brandon Judd just gave us great marks! @FoxNews”

BORDER/COLORADO/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “During a speech at an energy conference on Wednesday [10-23-19], President Trump listed Colorado as one of several states where he wanted to build a wall. ‘We’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico, and we’re building a wall in Colorado,’ he said. ‘We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works, that you can’t get over, you can’t get under. And we’re building a wall in Texas. And we’re not building a wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned.’ It appeared to be a gaffe. Mr. Trump regularly talks about building a wall along the United States’ border with Mexico, but this time he brought up Colorado, hundreds of miles north of the border…In a tweet early Thursday [10-24-19], Mr. Trump suggested that he had mentioned Colorado ‘kiddingly,’ noting that he had also mentioned Kansas as a place where a wall would not be built.”

BORDER/CONGRESS/FEDERAL FUNDING/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “Congress voted on Friday [9-27-19] to terminate the national emergency that President Trump has declared at the southwestern border, delivering a bipartisan rebuke of his efforts to redirect federal money to a border wall without congressional approval. The resolution of disapproval — the second time in two months that Congress has rejected Mr. Trump’s scheme to allocate large sums for a border barrier over lawmakers’ objections — fell short of its goal. With only 11 Republicans joining House Democrats in supporting it, the measure did not draw the two-thirds majority that would have been needed to overcome a veto. The Senate, which passed the measure this week, also did not muster a veto-proof majority. But the action underscored the continuing struggle between Mr. Trump and Congress over his signature political promise and domestic priority, a symbol of an immigration agenda that has divided the country and the two political parties.”

BORDER/SENATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “The Senate voted on Wednesday [9-25-19] for a second time to terminate the national emergency that President Trump declared at the southwestern border, in a bipartisan rejection of Mr. Trump’s bid to build a wall without congressional approval. But the 54-to-41 vote, in which 11 Republicans joined Democrats to break with the president over his signature domestic priority, fell short of the margin that would be needed to overcome a presidential veto, ensuring that Mr. Trump would be able to continue to redirect military funding to build a barrier on the southwestern border. The tally was nearly identical to the result of a vote in March, when Congress first sought to block the national emergency declaration and a dozen Republicans joined all Democrats present for the vote. Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, who voted in March to overturn the emergency declaration, did not vote on Wednesday.”
