Congresswoman Susan Davis Votes to Uphold the Constitution and End Trump’s National Emergency
Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after the House of Representatives voted to terminate President Trump’s so-called national emergency declaration on border wall funding. Davis is an original cosponsor of the bill to end Trump’s declaration.
“Today, a bipartisan House voted to uphold the Constitution and end President Trump’s national emergency declaration to fund his border wall. After failing to convince Congress and the American people to support his wall, Trump is attempting to bypass Congress and raid funding from our military and military families. Former national security leaders have spoken candidly against the use of military dollars for this purpose.
“Having been to the border numerous times, there is no emergency - only a humanitarian crisis created by this president. Border security is a complex issue that requires a focus on professional and technological resources.”
