The "Border National Emergency" thread

Surprised there wasn’t one.

The house will likely pass a resolution of disapproval. The Senate must vote and only needs 51 votes to pass (not certain, but not out of the question). But the Trump will likely veto and the margin will likely (99.99%) not be veto proof.

Then it will hit the courts. IMHO this is a slam dunk excess of power, but I am not a legal scholar.


Well, there’s this one

You may have gotten your order wrong. I expect motions to stay implementation hitting multiple district courts first thing in the morning. Congress is going to [del]debate[/del] speechify for a good chunk of time before each vote. The courts may actually get a first big shot in, let Congress fill in for a newscycle, and then take back over on the long slog to hear the actual case.
