"We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn't authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it's a risky thing", Paul added, according to the Bowling Green (Ky.) Daily News.

Paul joins three other Republican senators in supporting the effort to stop the order: Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of ME and Thom Tillis of North Carolina.

Three other Republican senators have announced they'll vote "no" to a national emergency declaration at the U.S. -Mexico border, too, including, Sen.

Under the declaration, Trump would divert $3.6bn from military construction to erect more border barriers, having been denied his requested funding by Congress, after a 35-day government shutdown over the issue.

"I can't vote to give extra-Constitutional powers to the president", said Paul. Obama declared national emergencies over the "situation" in Venezuela and Burundi, for example; Trump followed suit with regards to alleged human rights abuses and corruption in Myanmar and Nicaragua.

Democrats argue there is no border emergency and that Trump is overreaching. And it appears to have at least 51 votes, which is enough to pass in the Senate but not enough to override a presidential veto. "There has never been an instance where a president has asked for funding, Congress refused it, and the president then used the National Emergencies Act to justify spending the money anyway".

"We spent the last two months debating how much money should be spent on a wall, and Congress came to a clear conclusion: $1.3 billion".

US disrupted Russian trolls on day of November election
The country already said it would be more active if Russian Federation were to try to influence the American elections again. Since those indictments, the breadth of the troll farm's activities have come to light.

Trump's demand for $5.7 billion in funding for his "great, great wall" triggered the longest-ever partial USA government shutdown in December and January.

"So, we have a legislative branch, Congress, that handles these issues". "I think the president can spend what he would like to spend, we can get to the $5.7 billion, without having to invoke the emergency process".

Nonetheless, the disapproval resolution represents a blow to Trump's February 15 move to declare an emergency after Congress balked at giving him the money he demanded for his border wall.

Two-thirds of a majority is needed to override the veto, meaning 55 Republicans would have to vote with Democrats in the House. "Everybody knows we need border security. So the president has the authority to do it", Republican Congressman Kevin McCarthy said.

The Senate is expected to vote on the resolution before going on break beginning March 15th. Mr. Trump vowed to veto the resolution "100 percent".

"I stand with the president often, and I do so with a loud voice", the senator continued in an op-ed published late Sunday night on Fox News' website.
