The Trump administration may send a volunteer emergency response team to assist with security and humanitarian efforts at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to four current and former officials briefed on the discussions. With border arrest numbers on the rise, the Trump administration has been “casting about” for ways to devote additional resources to stem the flow of migrants, according to a DHS official familiar with the discussions. “My question is, do they actually need more people on the border or are they just trying to make a statement here?'” asked Craig Fugate, who was FEMA...

6 days ago   |   By

Twelve Republican senators on Thursday voted in favor of a resolution to terminate President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration to build his border wall.
This is a major rebuke of Trump and led the president to tweet "Veto!" minutes after the vote - an apparent threat to sign the first veto of his presidency.

Senate Votes to End President Trump's National Emergency at U.S.-Mexico Border

6 days ago   |   By

In a stunning rebuke, the Republican-controlled Senate has voted to terminate President Donald Trump's declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Senate voted 59-41 to cancel Trump's February proclamation of a border emergency, which he invoked to spend $3.6 billion more for border barriers than Congress had approved. Twelve Republicans joined Democrats in defying Trump in a showdown many GOP senators had hoped to avoid because he...
