The United States (US) Senate voted earlier today to trump president Trump's declaration of a national emergency at the US-Mexico border. The action thus affirms the House of Representatives in its rejection of the Trump's insisting intent to wall-off the sanctuary of the US from Latin America.
President Trump and his desire to build a wall along the US southern border has dominated major infrastructural echoes since he came to Office back in 2017. Democrats and forward-thinking Americans remain opposed to a structural wall as the answer to immigration concerns. They have been more willing to promote and to include biometric and other sources as means to tackling illegal immigration into the US.
With Congress rejecting Trump's money demands for the wall, the president has continuously sought other means to procure the financing needed for the wall, especially given the reality that Mexico will not pay for the wall as Trump suggested during his campaign for president back in 2016.
Today's 59-41 vote to deny the existence of a national emergency at the southern border, with 12-Republicans joining the ranks with Democrats, sets up the probability that the president will veto the measure. After the vote he tweeted: "VETO!"
Yet, whatever Trump does, the American legislature appears united in denying a national emergency at the border.
With China opening up 1.2 million-book libraries and continuing to upgrade its high-speed rail services and other infrastructural works, some US legislators would like to see the country's continued development as they share the hope that America's focus should be re-directed toward improving a crumbling infrastructure instead of a walling off the Spanish-speaking peoples in the south.
