There are still saboteurs lurking in the Republican Party.
And one just revealed themselves at a terrible time.
This RINO traitor committed an inexcusable betrayal by stabbing Trump in the back in one awful way.
Donald Trump declared a national emergency to use military construction funds to build the border wall.
Congress granted him this power under the 1976 National Emergency Act.
Trump was not acting unlawfully or abusively.
He merely made use of the authority delegated to him by the Legislative Branch.
But the law allows Congress to reject the measure by simple majorities in each house.
That means four Republicans need to join the Democrats to send the resolution to Trump’s desk – which he can then veto.
North Carolina RINO Thom Tillis – who favors amnesty and open borders – announced he would betray the President in order to vote with Chuck Schumer and the Democrats to oppose the national emergency and support open borders.
Tillis wrote in a Washington Post op-ed:
As a U.S. senator, I cannot justify providing the executive with more ways to bypass Congress. As a conservative, I cannot endorse a precedent that I know future left-wing presidents will exploit to advance radical policies that will erode economic and individual freedoms.
These are the reasons I would vote in favor of the resolution disapproving of the president’s national-emergency declaration, if and when it comes before the Senate.
There is no good reason to oppose the national emergency.
There is a crisis at the southern border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens caught each year trying to enter the country – saying nothing of the untold numbers that make it through.
The law clearly allows the President the power to declare emergencies without defining what they are.
Despite whatever flowery language Tillis included in his piece, his opposition is rooted in having a limitless influx of cheap foreign labor flow into the country.
