Trump vetoes lawmakers’ measure against border wall

Trump speaks during a meeting with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar at the White House

A dozen defecting Republicans joined Senate Democrats in approving the joint resolution on Thursday, which capped a week of confrontation with the White House as both parties in Congress strained to exert their power in new ways.

Alexander added that he shares the president's goal of border security, but warned allowing Trump to redirect money without authorization could set a risky precedent.

"Today I am vetoing this resolution", Trump said, flanked by law enforcement officials at an Oval Office event.

Lee proposed a version of the resolution that would have restricted future emergency declarations while grandfathering in Trump's, but he couldn't reach a compromise agreement with the White House, and the plan fizzled.

And Friday afternoon Trump again thanked those GOP senators who had voted to allow his emergency declaration to go forward.

Congressional critics do not appear to have the votes to override Trump's veto.

The renegade conservatives had condemned the emergency declaration for setting up a unsafe precedent for a president while emphasising that they still agreed with Mr Trump's tough border security policies. "This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier".

Trump originally declared a national emergency on the border last month after Congress granted only a fraction of the $5.7 billion he requested for a wall on the border.

While Congress is unlikely to muster the votes to override the veto, the rebuke from some members of his own party left Trump politically wounded, at least temporarily, as immigration and his planned wall along the US southern border become a flashpoint again in the 2020 presidential campaign.

Recent months have seen a surge in unauthorized crossings of the US border with Mexico.

The president has said he wants a wall to prevent immigrants from crossing into the United States illegally.

Before issuing the veto, Trump again said there was a tremendous national emergency, while U.S. Attorney General William Barr said the action the president had taken was legal.
