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.”

BORDER/DEMS/GOP/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Senate Democrats will force Republicans to vote again on President Donald Trump’s contentious national emergency declaration in the next month. Trump declared a national emergency in February to build a wall along the southern border after he failed to secure billions he asked for amid the longest federal government shutdown in U.S. history. Under the declaration, $8 billion would be diverted from federal accounts to build a barrier. Under federal law, Democrats can bring up a disapproval vote on Trump’s national emergency declaration, essentially forcing some Republicans to continue to back it. In March, the Senate passed a resolution disapproving of Trump’s national emergency, with support from 12 Republicans. The president, however, vetoed the resolution.”

BORDER/COURTS/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “A federal judge on Monday [9-9-19] issued a nationwide order barring a Trump administration policy that denies asylum to migrants crossing the border unless they have already tried and failed to obtain asylum in another country along the way, a rule that effectively bans claims for most Central Americans fleeing persecution and poverty. Judge Jon S. Tigar of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California reinstated a nationwide injunction preventing implementation of the new asylum policy in response to a federal appeals court ruling that had limited his original ruling’s scope to border states in the West. Judge Tigar made findings, as outlined by the appellate judges, that applying the injunction across the country was necessary to maintain a ‘uniform immigration policy’ and prevent ‘uneven enforcement.’”

BORDER/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The number of migrants caught crossing the southwest border continued a sharp decline in August, according to preliminary figures obtained by POLITICO. Border Patrol arrested roughly 51,000 migrants in August, a 30 percent drop from the previous month. The latest figures signal that counter-migration measures instituted by the Trump administration may be reducing the number of border crossers. Border arrests rose from July to August in eight of the last 10 years, which suggests the current drop is not related to recent historical patterns. President Donald Trump has made reducing illegal immigration a major focus of his administration and nascent reelection campaign, with mixed results. The number of migrants arrested at the border soared in the spring to the highest monthly levels in more than a decade. At the peak, Border Patrol arrested nearly 133,000 migrants at the southwest border, the biggest monthly total since March 2006.”
