The Wall Will Be Built

There are some design flaws in the wall.

Axios:


“The Senate voted on Thursday to 59-41 to terminate the president’s emergency declaration on what Trump describes as a national security crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, but the final tally fell short of the required 2/3 needed to override a veto.

“The state of play: Twelve Republican senators voted against Trump’s national emergency. Trump declared the emergency last month to reallocate $3.6 billion towards building a wall on the southern border.

“What’s next: Trump made it clear before the vote on Thursday that he plans to veto the bill. It will be the first veto of his presidency, made as some Republicans voice growing concerns about executive overreach.

12 Republicans voted to block Trump’s emergency declaration on Thursday:

  • Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)
  • Roy Blunt (Mo.)
  • Susan Collins (Me.)
  • Mike Lee (Utah)
  • Jerry Moran (Kan.)
  • Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
  • Rand Paul (Ky.)
  • Rob Portman (Ohio)
  • Mitt Romney (Utah)
  • Marco Rubio (Fla.)
  • Patrick J. Toomey (Pa.)
  • Roger Wicker (Miss.)

And so Hair Füror, humiliated, has vowed to whip out his best Sharpie and veto the bill. So, unless a buncha Republicans get a spine (we need 2/3 of the House and 2/3 of the Senate to override a veto and 67 Senators ain’t gonna happen if Lindsey Graham has to blow every Senator… twice), this thing will now proceed to the courts, where amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell’s court packing project will pay off.

Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell

We’re totally fucked in the dark.

    Mittens and Marco and Patrick and Roger,
    Lamar and Roy Blunt, and other old codgers;
    Rand Paul and Rob Portman, Lisa Murkowski,
    Along with Collins, they’ll all get an “owski”
    From the trump twitter tantrums, I feel safe to say –
    They’re all going to have a very bad day.

    I’m not so sure. My money is on a 5-4 vote with Roberts finding that he can’t do it where Congress explicitly forbids the appropriation.
    In any event, eff Mitch McConnell.
