On Friday, President Trump vetoed the decision by Congress to overturn his use of an emergency declaration for border wall funding.

Ivey and Hugo Barrera, Florida's director of High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas, were the two Florida representatives who witnessed the veto signing Friday, along with 20 other law enforcement, religious leaders and civilians from around the U.S.

Donald Trump himself of the insolence he felt towards his turncoat Republicans, whom he never loved in the first place.

Republicans who voted against the resolution want money to be there to secure the border, but wanted that to happen through the appropriations process, not through an executive order, said Barrasso, adding that he would have also preferred to do it that way.

"I stand with the president", the Wyoming Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it", Trump said from the Oval Office.

"I think the basic premise of Mike [Lee's] bill is correct", Republican Senator Jerry Moran said Thursday.

Thursday's vote was the first direct challenge to the 1976 National Emergencies Act, just as a Wednesday vote on Yemen was the first time Congress invoked the decades-old War Powers Act to try to rein in a president.

If he [the president] approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it.

Trump made a border wall a central promise of his 2016 campaign for the White House. "To me, border security is national security". The official was not authorized to speak publicly on internal deliberations so spoke on condition of anonymity.

Researchers have said that immigrants are less likely to commit crimes, despite Trump repeatedly linking immigration and crime.

Trump falsely claimed that the U.S.is "on track to APPREHEND more than one million people coming across the Southern Border this year". His signature ended a 35-day partial shutdown of the federal government, which had been triggered by a showdown after Congress refused to appropriate the $5.7bn he requested to start construction at the border.

Congress declined and the result was the longest shutdown in USA history.

Congress' vote to deny the crisis on the southern border is a vote against reality.It is a tremendous national emergency. Trump had campaigned for president promising Mexico would pay for the wall.
